"Meet The Bloggers" Event Set for Tuesday Night at INTA Toronto
Mark your calendars! The second annual "Meet the Bloggers" event is set for Tuesday night, May 9th, from 9:30 to midnight at the BeerBistro in Toronto. Marty Schwimmer and I invite any and all to attend. We hope to provide an oasis of sanity, a place for conversation, a quiet alternative to the larger, crowded, often deafening parties offered by others. We expect to be joined by fellow blogger Jeremy Phillips of IPKat and possibly others to be named later.
The BeerBistro is located just a few blocks north and east of the INTA headquarters hotel. [Here is a map of the area.] It boasts "one of Toronto's most extensive beer lists and one of the city's finest bars."
Marty Schwimmer, as you all know, is the grandfather of trademark blogging. His Trademark Blog sets the standard that we mere mortal bloggers try to meet. Marty also birthed the Shape Blog, to which I am a regular contributor.
Jeremy Phillips and Ilanah Simon founded the must-read IPKat blog in 2003, providing insight and wry commentary regarding "copyright, patent, trademark, and privacy/confidentiality issues from a mainly UK and European perspective.
