Creative Cities Summit in Detroit – Update

Earlier this year, we reported that this year’s Creative Cities Summit 2.0 will be taking place in Detroit, October 12-15, 2008. Well, the schedule for the event is fleshing out and it looks to be a very interesting event.

Check here for the speaker list and here for the current agenda.

Introducing The Hub


If Metblogs is a city, hub.metblogs is the playground. We kept hearing from people that one of their favorite parts of Metblogs was meeting and interacting with readers and writers from other parts of the world, as well as getting requests for more ways that readers could be involved besides just posting comments. We thought about this for a while and decided that with a network like this, a giant community area where folks from all over the world could hang out, post photos and videos, talk with each other, form groups, play games, send messages, and do about a million other things was probably a pretty fun idea. The Hub is that.

If you have any tech ideas or suggestions join this group and speak up. See you on hub.metblogs!

Metroblogging Detroit Needs New Writers

Hi there Detroiters,

As you can tell if you have us on your Google Reader or other mode of RSS, we haven’t been doing much lately.

Sorry. We’ve been busy, and we lost a few writers. So now we need some new ones!

If you’re interested in writing for this modest little blog, if you’re a photographer who wants to find a larger audience, or if you’re both, then we’d love to have you begin writing for Metrobloggin’ Detroit.

If you’re interested, email me at this address (it’s the address for my other blog). You can be a seasoned writer who wants a new outlet or a beginner who wants some experience or just someone who likes to write about Detroit–the only qualification is that you don’t mind doing it for free.

Actually, the other qualification is the simple interest in writing about anything about Detroit. If you fit both, send me an email and we’ll get you started.

Thanks a million,

Red, White, and Red Again

Happy Canada Day


I look forward to crossing the Ambassador Bridge to go celebrate on Canadian soil.  The waterfront fair has been calling my name for the past couple of weeks.  I want to get on the Ferris wheel in Windsor and see Detroit sparkle across the river.
