I launched my tech-focused marketing consultancy +Caret Juice Marketing today.

The Google+ page is a little sad and ghost-towney and I'd consider anyone adding it to one of their circles to be doing me a great favor.

This is pretty good evidence  that animals are a lot more intelligent than we give them credit for.

These animals were shot with poison arrows by humans, had never been to the wildlife shelter but had mated with elephants raised at the shelter, and knew to go to the shelter to seek help from humans.

If ever there was a good way to disguise insect-based protein it would be in a kale smoothie.

Seriously, if you're drinking a kale smoothie, then you need to realize that aphids are an environmentally friendly source of protein that belong with one of the healthiest food trends today.

Like so many things in technology today. This is kind of cool and kind of scary.

"As soon as somebody manages to build a biometric profile of your keystrokes at a network/website where you are otherwise completely anonymous, that same profile can be used to identify you at other sites you’re using, were identifiable information is available about you."

Does this say more about me or the world we live in?

Thesaurus.com lists freedom as a synonym for security. If Western governments have taught me anything over last decade, it is that freedom is the antonym of security.

Vancouver from Lighthouse Park.

This is one of the few times that I had a real camera with zoom.

Mount Baker looms majestically behind Vancouver, but you can't see it in this picture.

The New York Times goes full BuzzFeed with this opinion piece (a convenient dodge for low standards) complete with a troll title and an article that picks the facts that support it while ignoring facts, like the Conservative government winning the last election despite low support or the fact that there's only one right-wing federal party and four center-left- or left-wing ones.

Golf clap NY Times...
The tenure of Prime Minister Stephen Harper has seen the slow-motion erosion of the country’s reputation for open, responsible government.

So now that Greece isn't ruled by elected officials but creditors what do we call its government? A creditocracy?

Isn't it a wonderful world we live in where debt is a "moral hazard" that justifies handing a country over to a cabal of banks.

I did an interview with ecommerce news site Internet Retailer about my work for SYSPRO Canada and how we're using Bedrock Data, Inc. It's a high-level summary of some of the changes we've made over the last year and a bit.

I must admit to being surprised that they even mentioned that I "declined to comment on the impact on sales." I work for a private company. I didn't decline, it's simply not information that we disclose and that is so normal for a private company that it does not merit comment.

It's a good read for my friends and family who want to understand what I do and useful if you're considering Bedrock.

It's probably not going to revolutionize your marketing. That takes way more than 1500 words.

A view of the harbour a few minutes walk from my place in Vancouver.

Most of the harbour is fully industrialized an access is restricted, so it is nice to be able to get to the water even if the beach isn't all that welcoming.

I've been working out of the Suite Genius Mt. Pleasant location for the last two months. It's a great space in a great location. They do a weekly happy hour which provides a great opportunity to network with others working out of the space. I think keeping it weekly provides the perfect balance between providing networking opportunities without letting activities get too distracting. We are all there to get work done. As a cyclist, the shower and changing room is a huge plus.
