Kick-off post to Blog Action Day October 15, 2007

Posted by Raul in Blog Action Day, environment, sustainability.

Don’t know how I managed to not appear on the Blog Action Day list given that I had previously registered and blogged about it (see my post here) so I re-registered. Had mixed feelings regarding whether I should post anything during the early hours of the morning, given that I wanted to give my analysis of the roles of Al Gore and the IPCC in bringing climate change to the forefront of global discussions a little bit of visibility. But… since I’ve already committed to Blog Action Day, I will be ok if my little post doesn’t get that much exposure.

So on the menu today (if I manage to get all my work done)…

  • Green restaurants – Had a nice chat with Jason Antony of Green Table, so I’ll discuss some stuff that we talked about.
  • The linkages between poverty, urban sprawl and sustainability.
  • Numbers, numbers and more numbers (or how people can fool you with statistics).
  • Research that is being undertaken in Vancouver.
  • Upcoming events on sustainability.

And for now, I have to get back to my ‘day job’ so I hope you all are enjoying Blog Action Day. Go to their website to see who else is participating. And if you’re a Vancouver blogger and are participating, let me know and I’ll link to your website.

Hey Raul,

Looks like we have similar interests!
Your blog didn’t appear? Mine’s listed for the 14th of October between a Smiths fan and a My Chemical Romance fan. Interesting. Looks like we should be signing up extra early next year, though. Wow, they got almost 20,000 blogs! That’s insane. More next year, I bet, depending on the topic. I posted last night and put the timestamp as this afternoon knowing I wouldn’t have time at lunch. The whole time zone difference kind of threw me off, though.

I just discovered commenters on my blog weren’t getting their links displayed… because the a tag was turned off for comments! Oddly enough it applies to the commenter’s own URL. Strange. Anyway, fixed now, so I do justice to your kind post 😉
