The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

Terminal City: Tune Out... Way Out

From last week’s Terminal City, a column on the network TV tune-out from the Democratic National Convention, and a big yawn-out to the blogs. Unlike some other critics, I happen to think that the nets were right to skip over the conventions now that no actualy news comes from ‘em.

Coming up in tomorrow’s paper, a snarky look at the shake-ups at both the Province and the Georgia Straight. Both of their editors-in-chief left for greener papers pastures in the same week; the Province’s Vivienne Sosnowski to the San Francisco Examiner; Beverley Sinclair moved crosstown to bourgeois-bohemian monthly Shared Vision.
Sheesh Ian,

Have you seen the SF Examiner is no longer the paper of Will Herst that hired HST....believe me this is no step up for Sosnowski.
Better in the sense that she'll no longer be working at a place where a good number of employees want to strangle her; other than that, it's a move from one skimpy and uninfluential rag to another.
