Media Monday Edmonton: Update #73

Here is my latest update on local media stuff:

  • I attended the Spacing Edmonton launch party last week, along with a few hundred other Edmontonians packed into The Common. It was great to see Spacing’s publisher and editor Matthew Blackett back in Edmonton for the event.

  • Local co-editor Paul Giang spoke at the event, and published an editor’s note to kick off the website:

Indeed, Edmonton is a city undergoing transition. With rapid economic growth, emerging global/regional issues and many ambitious projects underway, we have reached a critical point where we must have a constructive public discussion about Edmonton: to explore its past and present, to understand who we are and what do we want, and to appropriately address the future. This discussion has already started with many passionate citizens and we have many great stories waiting to be told and celebrated locally and globally. Spacing Edmonton aims to accelerate just that.
