Jobs in marketing and technology

Please feel free to access my collection of publicly available resources related to marketing and technology. I work in a constantly-changing field so I’ve been collecting and sharing valuable links for years. I mostly use twitter (with automatic posting to pinboard of tweets that contain links), and netvibes. You can also access a few sites that focus on jobs in the technology field – mostly in BC and Canada (because that’s where I am!).
