Design Tech Hair Studio is a very successful hair salon in Richmond. Its original design - built in 2003 - reflected the salon's brand back then. Built originally as a static site, it was time to take advantage of newer technology and move Design Tech Hair Studio onto a platform where they'd be able to update the content themselves. We chose to use WordPress and seized the opportunity to update the site's look and feel as well. This resulted in a sexy and clean website, reflecting the salon's new brand, colors and attitude.

Christian with the Jesus factor

"As the deer pants for the water brooks, so my soul pants for You, O God." - Psalm 42:1

I Am Christain

As a member of several networking forums, I am no stranger to the process of filling in one's profile. The purpose of a profile is to reveal a bit about yourself and bring some definition to who you are through your occupation, company, interests, website, blog etc.

On occasion, a profile will also include an opportunity to share information of a more personal nature such as hobbies, activities, political stand, and religious views. It is the latter that I find myself giving much thought to.

In the 2001 Census, 78 % of Canadians claimed to be Christian, yet there is seeming little similarity in how this religious view is lived out in their lives.

With so many people calling themselves a Christian, and their lives, choices, convictions and morals contradicting each other, I wonder how calling myself a Christian could possibly draw a clear picture of my religious views.

Well it's that time of the year again when I gear up for the British Columbia Library Association's Kids Summer Reading Club (SRC).

Kids SRC 2008 Website

Each summer, Kids in BC are afforded an opportunity to do something constructive and fun with their time by joining a summer reading club.

It's totally free. If you're interested in enrolling your kids, simply head on down to your local library and sign up.

What is Kids SRC?

The Kids SRC is designed to get children reading, with the use of a fun theme, posters, stickers, a reading record, bookmarks, completion medals, and novelty items. In addition each year they have a new designed website which offers 7 quizzes (1 for each week of the program) word puzzles, and fun games.

The theme this summer Read All Over the Map has kids learning very interesting historical facts about Beautiful British Columbia!

Thank you!

Thank you to the BCLA for the opportunity yet again (3rd year in a row) to be a part of this wonderful program!

The 2008 Kids SRC is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association, and the local public libraries with the assistance of the Public Library Services Branch, Ministry of Education, Shirley Bond, Minister

I’m very happy to announce that the Vancouver Joomla Day event was well attended with over 120 people eager to learn about Joomla CMS.

Joomla Day Vancouver

Registration started at 9:00am. Attendees were given a raffle ticket, t-shirt (for those who RSVP'd in time) and Joomla Day name tag. What a friendly bunch. I got to meet each of them as I assisted Wendy (main organizer) with the registration process.

Coffee, tea muffins and cookies were in abundance thanks to Bread Garden, who also catered lunch with yummy wraps and subs.

Joomla Day Vancouver - official website

Joomla! CMS is one of the most powerful Open Source content management systems (CMS) on the planet. Joomla! is easy to manage, reliable to use, and is very popular with those of my clients using it.

The newest version of Joomla (version 1.5) is an ideal platform for building Corporate websites, Intranets and Social Networks.

So, it is with great pleasure that I make this announcement: Vancouver is officially hosting a Joomla! Day event – one of Joomla’s largest and most popular events!

As a sponsor and event organizer, you can probably imagine how excited I am to spread the word, and even more so… to invite you to join us.

TAZZU WordPress Camp - rockin' the Hub

This past Wednesday, myself, along with rmd Studio, PeerGlobe and TAZZU, and hosted Vancouver’s first WordPress Camp.

Thanks to Amanda Abrams for this great photo!

WordPress Camp Vancouver

We initially estimated around 35 to 40 people attending the event, located at the beautiful Network Hub. However, word got out, and a week before the event, RSVPs starting flooding in... yeah, I commenced to panic.

Phone calls were quickly made to locate a larger venue, but with such short notice none could be found, so we all just 'pressed' in.

The first to arrive got chairs, others took to the floor, and the rest stood. Okay, it's not ideal, but I tell you what, there sure was a sense of community within the room. We made the best of it.

I had the pleasure of greeting all the attendees, and must say they are an amazing bunch. I feel like I've just made a whole whack of new friends.

To summarize the event: the presenters were fabulous, making the most of their 20 minutes. As far as topics go, there was really something there for everyone. In addition, sponsors provided Timmy's coffee and donuts for all, and a free beer (thanks Automattic!) for those who made it out to the after-party held at the Flux Bistro.

So, from me personally,to all of you, thank you so much for making TAZZU's WordPress Camp a huge success!
