Cortes Island

I just arrived on Cortes Island for the Web of Change conference. For the record this place is 3 ferries away from the mainland (Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo, Campbell River to Quadra Island and then Quadra Island over to Cortes Island). This is definately the most remote spot I’ve been to since living in Yellowstone.

People are still arriving and I’m about to wander down and find some (vegetarian dinner). I’m excited… and a lil bit nervous… about the days to come. Themes of this event seem to be hippies, eagles, synergy, un-connected-ness, yoga, granola, sticking the word community in front of anything, hot tubbing, geekery and winning the 2008 US election. More to come later tonight.
