Everything you need to know about broadcasting on the Physical Web without Buying Beacons from +Uri Shaked 

... off to try on my Raspberry Pi 3 :)
The Physical Web is still pretty new, but the basic idea is that the Physical Web lets you broadcast any URL to the people around you…

Passionate about building disruptive apps that will change the world, and have some fun along the way.
Introduction
I live in the glorious Rocky Mountains of Canada, with my wife and four children (all grown up now). 

"There is no Wealth, without Health" - living close to nature is the ticket to health. Escape the city, move to the mountains!  I did. Best idea ever.

Currently ramping up to launch disruptive apps to the world, looking for co-founders to speed up the process.
Bragging rights
Awesome marriage of 31 years, the ultimate team. Uncluttered mind. Refuse to "kiss the ring".

The rooms are very nice with romantic soaker tubs in the master ensuites. Each room is a suite with large, well appointed kitchens, which is good because there is no restaurant or food services onsite. The heated underground parking is great at a snowy mountain resort. And the location is very close to the lifts. BUT the "Spa" and "Restaurant" spaces were never completed which is the main reason for the lower rating. If this is not important to you, then the rating would be much higher. Another issue is the swimming pool on the north side of the four story building, in Canada! So it is always in the shade, duh. But, like I mentioned the rooms are really nice, possibly the best on the mountain, and you have heated parking.

This is the best place to find interesting food in the region! The owners are very keen on local, organic, strange and healthy groceries. The selection is awesome and always changing. They now bake awesome bread in store, as well as carry other local bakers. The new juice bar has live wheat grass, to compliment the other fresh ingredients. They even carry "Bulletproof Coffee"supplies now! Though it is very small, Centex is our "go-to" grocery store. A true local treasure. There is 24 hour fuel, which is discounted Tuesday to Thursdays at the pump, but not posted on the big sign, not sure why.

Very corporate, not my first choice in Kimberley, but the main restaurant on the ski hill.

The Platzl is slowly regaining its past charm as Kimberley rebuilds its economy after the main employer, the Sullivan Mine, closed a few years back. The gardens in the summer are very nicely maintained and there is open ping-pong and large chess available for free.

Small but clean mulit theater, with the bonus that you can buy your tickets online to guarantee a seat for the more popular movies.

Simple and quiet, with great beaches and clean, warm water. There are very few commercial amenities, so you need to be self sufficient. Lots of hiking immediately to the east.

Serious tree skiing! The resort has thinned much of the forest so skiing the trees is awesome. The lifts are old and slow, but that just means there are less people on the terrain. The beer and bar food were organic and the best we have had, ever! The road up to the resort was very slippery, since it snows a lot, so have very good tires. There is no large population center close by, so lift lineups were not an issue, we skied right on to the lift all day and made fresh tracks all day! Can't wait to go back, but it is about a four hour drive for me. There is no accommodation at the resort. The town of Nelson is about 30 minutes away and we got a great ski and stay deal from the Prestige Inn, including a real breakfast.
