While I annoy Canadians love McDonald's as much as down south, so sorry about that annoying spam today. I just blocked the member and made it so only the admin can send a message to all members.

Sorry about that,

@Bill Johnston - thanks for the Hans Rosling TED talk link.  I'm completely addicted to TED, and this was a gem.

I'm new to the group - looks really interesting, and am looking forward to interacting with you! 


For anyone interested in Health care - just wanted to point out our ImagineNation Ideas Challenge:  we're awarding cash prizes for ideas from Canadians on improving the health care system using technology.


Now I'm going back to browsing everyone else's comments and posts.

What effect on your workload does an election call have on your job? Is this a time for breathing and catching up because nothing will be passed or is it a time of stress, not knowing the outcome? Perhaps new projects are stalled awaiting the results?

They say a true genius is one who takes the compicated and makes it simple. Here is an excellent example. Hans Rosling has done 6 TED talks, this is one of his best! Hans Rosling on TED

Normally David Eaves is giving Canada props but his recent blog post doesn't sugar coat anything:

I spent 3 days recently at the University of Toronto's CRM Center of Excellence.  It was a fascinating experience as I listened to 'thought leaders' in the CRM and Social Media space including Paul Greenberg (author CRM at the Speed of Light), Ray Wang(social guru Forrester/Altimerter Group), Mitch Joel (author of Six Pixels of Separation) and many more interesting speakers not to mention a fascinating group of attendees.  The seminar and conversation centered around Social CRM.  If you haven't explored this topic, Google "Social CRM".  I'm interested to know how this change in customer relationship management, centered around the "customer experience" and the "customer controlled business ecosystem" will play out in the public space?
