• Vancouver has lost one of its most compelling creators: Darren Barefoot. See his last blog post: They were all splendid
  • We in the tech community in Vancouver, Ireland, and beyond were lucky to have intersected with Darren and his life and work.
  • I was privileged enough to have hung out with DB (and fabulous partner Julie) at the Northern Voice blogging conference and to be a co-organizer and attend so many NV meetings with him. So many great memories, so many great DB blog posts and words. e.g. May 2, 2016: Why marketers need to become inventors
    • “I like to think my friend Roland invented content strategy in the early 2000’s when he described his Four C’s: create compelling content constantly. Content strategy has, of course, been added to our long list of online marketing activities — media relations, SEO, email marketing, social media and so forth — that everyone does. We have to do these things just to keep up with our competitors. I call these ongoing daily marketing activities “heartbeats,” because they’re constant, reliable and they keep an organization’s outreach alive.”
  • Thanks DB. I miss you!
