Social Media Workshops

raincoaster sees all, blogs all!

Look out! Here comes tomorrow!

By popular and unpopular demand, I and a loose association of similarly-minded social media ninja/pirate/cyborg/rockstars/high priests/high priestesses/completely stone cold sober priests and priestesses are putting on regular blogging and social media courses, both online and in person in Vancouver and Montreal.

For more details, you can check out my professional blog at raincoastermedia.com and to check how sketchy the legendary raincoaster is or is not, you can read my bio and public speaking schedule.

The actual workshops are listed on our Workshop page, and the schedule is up as a public Google Calendar which is listed in the sidebar on raincoastermedia.com as well.

Learn from the best! Well, learn from the most infamous, anyway! To get on the mailing list for courses, use the contact form below:

  4. LEGAL NOTICE OF DEFAMATION AND DMCA NOTICE.

    RE: THIS VIOLATION:

    http://raincoaster.tumblr.com/post/40825985279/sue-basko-trading-card

    FROM: SUSAN BASKO, JD. ESQ./ LAWYER FOR SELF. CONTACT: SUEBASKO@GMAIL.COM PHONE: 310-770-7413 MAIL: PO BOX 1694, H’WOOD, CA 90078

    It has come to my attention that you have posted reckless, vicious defamation called me a “Fake-Ass Lawyer.” This is defamation per se, as I am not only a licensed attorney, but an internationally-recognized attorney in my fields, a magna cum laude law graduate, and highly accomplished.

    Further, you have violated my Copyright by using my photo which is owned by me.

    You MUST delete this post and any other post that mentions my name, uses my photo, or mentions any of my work.

    I am absolutely APPALLED that you who are supposedly a professional, would engage in such extreme egregious, totally reckless defamation wholly without regard to facts.

    THIS MUST BE IMMEDIATELY REMOVED AND A SINCERE RETRACTION MUST BE POSTED. YOU MAY ALSO BE REQUIRED TO PAY DAMAGES WHICH ARE STATUTORY UNDER SUCH PER SE DEFAMATION.

    THIS IS AN UTTERLY SHOCKING VIOLATION OF ALL JOURNALISTIC ETHICS AND STANDARDS.

    SIGNED: SUSAN BASKO, Attorney at Law, California and Illinois, USA

  5. SEE DEFAMATION AND DMCA NOTICE ALREAD SENT. In addition please note I have an FBI complaint pending against those who have cyberstalked and harassed me by posting that I am a “fake lawyer” and other such non-stop harassment. I am absolutely shocked that a person such as you, who has been hired a few times as a writer, does not know the basics of defamation per se or of journalistic ethics. I worked extremely hard to become a lawyer, graduating at the top of my class and earning many honors, and at an older age. It is thoroughly shocking that you would commit such egregious defamation per se against me, and degrade me and violate my copyright by publishing my photo along with your disgusting, reckless violations of my dignity and rights. Signed: Susan Basko, Esq.

  6. That, my dear, is not a journalistic article. It is a satirical image created by the online group calling themselves “ninjas” and as such I believe it is protected speech. In any case, take it up with the creators.

  7. And I am amused that someone who claims to be a highly competent lawyer does not recognize the difference between a satirical trading card reblogged on Tumblr and an actual article.

  8. Also amusing, as I am going through past correspondence with Sue, and she tells me about having posted a photo of someone without permission, then later thinking better of it and blurring the pic.
    “I JUST POSTED HIS PIC BUT BLURRED HIS FACE. Yesterday I posted his pic without blurred face and then decided that was unwise of me.”

  9. And, almost a year ago exactly, she send me this out of the blue:

  10. All sounds great, especially if a needy not-quite-nerds do not reside in Yellowknife (catchy –wonder who named this city), Vancouver or Victoria. Drat. Very interesting your 2013 year in Blogging Stats. Hmn.
