Episode 37: Eat Alberta, Opening the Potential, VenturePrize, The Yeggies, yegTreeMap

In our thirty-seventh episode, we discuss Eat Alberta, Opening the Potential, TEC Edmonton’s VenturePrize, the Yeggies, and the City of Edmonton’s yegTreeMap.

Graham attended Eat Alberta once again this year, and had a great experience. Mack has been on the organizing committee for the last four years and is now stepping away. Here’s the episode we did last year on Eat Alberta!

Mack thinks the new Opening the Potential program is a worthwhile endeavor, while Graham thinks it is sexist. Are enough women getting involved in municipal politics? Can programs like this help? We also discuss the VenturePrize business plan competition, the 2013 Yeggies, and the City’s new online tree map.

Episode 11: Social Media & The Yeggies

In our eleventh episode we take a bit of a break from urban affairs in Edmonton and talk all about social media. We discuss why people do it and how to get the most out of social media. We also talk about The Yeggies, an awards show taking place in May 4 to celebrate Edmonton’s online content creators:

The Edmonton New Media Awards, or the Yeggies, is an annual awards show created to recognize and celebrate outstanding social media content creators in the capital region. It’s an awards show to highlight some of the amazing talent we have here in Edmonton — from people who code websites themselves, to those who write, speak, draw, all on their own time. Yeggies recipients inspire, evoke, inform, educate and entertain us, and they do it because they have a passion for it.

Mack received two nominations for his blog, in the “Best in Political or Current Affairs” and “Best in Edmonton” categories. You can check out the full list of nominees here.

Who knows, maybe one day Mack & Cheese will be nominated!
