Podcamp Toronto 2010: TechVibes.com’s Karim Kanji: hyper local, hyper productive
The most engaging speaker I caught at Podcamp Toronto 2010 last week was Karim Kanji of TechVibes.com. TechVibes bills itself as “a hyper-local technology blog, events calendar, job board, and company directory across a growing network of [13 North American cities].” Karim has been writing for TechVibes for just three months but has pumped out an amazing amount of content driven by his goal to write three articles a day. Yes, I said three a day – in addition to working full time and raising a kid. Karim said he focuses on the Toronto tech scene and tells stories too local for global online sources like Mashable and TechCrunch to touch. His claim was backed up by the fact that people from at least two of the companies he spoke of were in the room.
