Sitting in Maclab bistro - latin music on the speakers, fans going into a Raptors game on one big TV screen, a montage of exotic Cuba on the other, snow falling in small flakes straight down, viewed through the wide, tall windows. Thoughts of sixteen people from Canada and USA all thinking about how to push literature out to & maybe beyond the edge. Fabric, facebook, mash-ups, poetics, narrativity, digitivity, performance. And now to meet the Airporter shuttle with Darren Wershler on it. Tune back in for more later.
