The internets r awesome!

Here is a recap of some fancy things the internet is offering us this week...

First we have this neato party concept by GOOD Magazine, where you can win money having fun with friends.
To celebrate our latest print issue, “Beg, Borrow, or Steal,” we invite you to propose a plan for a magazine launch party that creatively reflects this theme. Submit here for a chance to win $300 and 50 copies of our latest issue to share at your event.
If you win send me a copy, mkay?

Have you heard about Girl Bike Love? It's an well done website dedicated to getting women on bikes, edited by the dedicated and funny Sarai Snyder. It's an excellent resource to get you more into your bike through tool introductions, product reviews, and cycle industry interviews. Sarai was just at NAHBS (I'm totally jealous) and snapped some great shots and is promising a few good interviews as well! GBL are also a blast to follow on the twitter.

In MORE money money money news, VanCity Credit Union here in Vancouver is offering up some serious start-up funds
