Trey Ratcliff to Keynote in Toronto 

Trey Ratcliff to keynote at TBEXDid you hear the news? Photographer, artist, writer and adventurer Trey Ratcliff will be kicking off TBEX Toronto as the opening keynote speaker.
Trey is a pioneer in the world of High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography and has half a million readers who come to blog every month to see the new photos he uploads daily. One of his images is the first HDR photograph to hang in the Smithsonian. His accomplishments are even more incredible because Trey was born blind in one eye! This is a keynote you don’t want to miss.
Twitter Chats: A Great Way to Network, Learn and (Sometimes) Make Money 

Read Sheila's guest post about Twitter chats.“For those who still think Twitter is a time-suck about what you ate for lunch, chats are a surprisingly efficient way to do a huge amount of learning and professional development in a short period of time (one hour) plus meet and network with other chat participants. That’s important because the value of Twitter is in finding and following smart people, then learning from them.”
