Vancouver's Dave Shea Contributes to Blogger Relaunch

By Richard Eriksson on May 9, 2004 - 7:52pm

Blogger re-launches with an all-new design and new features, and acknowledges some of the contributors:

Talk about great Web design. Jeffery Zeldman has you covered. So do Dan Cederholm, Todd Dominey, Dan Rubin, Dave Shea, and the aforementioned Mr. Douglas Bowman. The best and brightest web designers around created twenty six new templates for you to choose from; bringing the total up to thirty three
Blogger template designs.

That's an impressive list of web designers, which includes Vancouver's own Dave Shea, whose weblog is a must-read (the discussions in his comments section are usually excellent too) for technology professionals interested in developing great-looking, standards-compliant websites.

Vancouver Block Building With Lone Window-Washer

Vancouver Block Building With Lone Window-Washer

From Vancouver Architecture:

The Vancouver Block building, designed by architects Parr and Fee, standing at fourteen stories was built in 1912. While the style and taste of this Edwardian structure is somewhat questionable, its clock, framed by Greco-Roman ornaments is most definitely eye-catching.

The Struggle Is Not Over: Supporters of the Hospital Employees Union Want to Repeal the Deal

The Struggle Is Not Over: Supporters of the Hospital Employees Union Want to Repeal the Deal

Saw this poster in East Vancouver today. The main text of it reads:

On May 3rd 2004 hospital workers across the province overwhelmingly refused the "deal" that was made on their behalf to end the weeklong HEU strike and to intercept massive labour actions planned across BC.

As a result of this imposed agreement, workers in British Columbia face more privatization, more layoffs and a massive pay cut. According the 'deal' [sic], 600 more jobs will be contracted out in the next 2 years and members of the Hostpital Employees Union face a 15% rollback on wages and benefits. This does not include the 1000's of workers that have already received layoff notices prior to May 1st 2004.

Sat. May 8th, join HEU workers and community members for justice, healthcare and workers rights!

Troy Angrignon: Anybody running massive automated Mac OS X install scripts in Vancouver, BC?

By Boris Mann on May 7, 2004 - 4:31pm

It's sometimes tough to find out about the inner workings of businesses even in your own city. I've added Troy's site to our Vancouver Business Blogs bundle.

Check out this great article (old but good) from Mac Central that talks about Pixar's Mac OS X transition and how they upgraded 1000 machines to run OS X. Does anybody know of any large studios here in town that are already taking advantage of that level of automation? If so, drop a note.Troy Angrignon: Anybody running massive automated Mac OS X install scripts in Vancouver, BC?
