Vancouver’s Gifts to the World

This week, Metroblogging sites around the world are running a series of 7 Gifts that their cities have to offer the world.

So far, Metroblogging Vancouver‘s Gifts to the World are:
Flickr!
Greenpeace

Seattle has offered up a cupcake shop and its art scene(huh?).
New York is proud of its famous movie settings and Attitude.
Montreal saves the world with its environmental treaty and lets us enjoy life with its local music scene.
And Toronto…well it has nothing to offer the world, at least not yet.

So far, I think Vancouver’s gifts are the best. But I’m a Flickr addict and a big environmentalist. I’m trying to figure out what the next 5 gifts will be. Maybe Wreck Beach? Whistler? Granville Island? Hollywood North? Douglas Coupland? Yippies? Rain? Amazing sushi?

One thought on “Vancouver’s Gifts to the World”

  1. those artists look familiar …
    i’ve played Sufjan Stevens for you, i guess you just didn’t know it. since most of the music on that list is mine, last.fm is pretty darned smart. or maybe there are just lots of people with the same taste as me (i like the first explanation better). does this mean i’ll get a whole new playlist of related artists when i return to canada? it can be part of my reintegration 🙂
