Vancouver magazines: Only 7 days left to register for Web Weekend!

This is the second-last stop on a cross-country tour that started in Toronto, got snowed-in in Halifax, and will conclude its first circuit in Edmonton at the end of March. So far, it's been a hell of a lot of fun -- the faculty is top-notch and the participants are reporting back that they've embarked on new Web initiatives already. What more could one ask?

So here are the details for Vancouver:
