the upside to peer1 is that it's on the 21st floor in downtown vancouver and has an awesome view. the downside? well, we'll get to that in due course.

jones thinks the battlestar gallactica remake was filmed / is being filmed in sunny vancouver. HOW COOL IS THAT?

'vancouver' magazine (yeah, snappy title) has photos of the awesome-looking millenium line skytrain stations. the station shown (brentwood) is probably worth checking out in person, and i intend to when i get the time.

dinner with nick finck and dave shea (pronounced 'shay' according to stew - crazy canadians). nice guys. i didn't realise dave was in vancouver.

lunch today with robert scoble (microsoft), tim bray (w3c/xml) and some other geeks in vancouver. after scoble mentioned that he'd given bill a demo of flickr (woo!), he spoke about how he searches weblogs (via technorati) for microsoft product mentions, then in the case of somebody complaining about a feature, forwards a link to the person in charge of the product. i mean, wow. if you post on your weblog about some missing feature in outlook, the outlook project manager might well end up reading that. who would have thought that ms was such a responsive company?

buses in vancouver look like grasshoppers. when viewed from above at least. the two metal pantographs which join them to the overhead power cables looks like antennas. just so you know.

oooh - comic fest in vancouver in a few weeks. i might just go along to this.

vancouver airport is by far the most beautiful i have seen. by really really far. clean crisp lines, beautiful structure and bizarre indoor outdoor scenes, with a mini-waterfall scene. unlike anything i've ever seen. people should learn from this. the only other airport that's interested me was paris cdg - a huge concrete spider, with a web of moving walkways in the centre. fun, but feels old. vancouver feels new.

aren't they building some hyper-architectural airport in china somewhere (spotted in wallpaper), or was that a seaport?

only a few days in vancouver and i find myself hoplessly addicted to jolt cola. with a seven-eleven about 10 metres from the office, i'm doomed to a sugary death. yay!
