On a busy night during the Olympics, i headed over to Canada North hospitality house with a group of True North Media House documenters. Tagging along was a CBC crew including the charming reporter Heba Hani (?)]. I was included in the finished CBC Radio 1 piece which focused on media makers in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver.

Leading up to the 1 year anniversary of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, i appeared in a short segment on Vancouver News 11030 radio station. I discussed social media as a whole and covering the Games through the True North Media House project – plus the impending With Glowing Hearts movie premiere. In the short clip, I included brief anecdotes about reliving the fun, documenting and storytelling, and how social media can provide depth and breadth to provide more attention to more stories beyond the "official" IOC/VANOC story.
