Introduction
The examples of businesses who are using social media really really well aren't hard to find. There are great and often entertaining examples of companies who have built amazing communities around their brands and are growing because of it. But the standouts are usually outliers in any field, no? 

When we started Sociallogical we figured companies might need us to help them figure out social media for 5-10 years and then everyone would get it and we'd find a new purpose. However, media continues to change quickly and significantly, making entry and advantage harder to figure out. So, still, most business leaders I meet aren't sure of what they need, who can provide it, how much it should cost, or what the potential outcomes could be. But they know social media is a big deal and they know they need to make that channel work to survive and grow.

This kind of internal culture change excites me, within communities and businesses. From my time as the founder of six startups - successful and unsuccessful - in 4 Canadian cities and in a role for several years that made me privy to the business models and operations of countless technology companies, I have an inventory of options and possibilities to consider that I have learned is uncommon. 

I marry change leadership with social communication strategies to help people use social media to grow their businesses and careers and to truly understand its power and utility.

I am the husband to an über-creative entrepreneur who makes a living helping people online and off. I'm also the dad to three very bright and social kids.

I’m a proud New Brunswicker who loves my home city of Saint John, which I consider to be a startup -incredible potential, constant iteration, collaboration, and growth.

I love to start and grow things. And I love to connect people.

As a less diverse region, have the Maritimes missed out on what the world thinks makes #Canada great? #nbpoli
 
 
"The curriculum about Canada focuses on Chinese immigrants, bilingualism and multiculturalism, which is perceived as the best, if not perfect, choice to solve problems of ethnic conflicts and social harmony.

How is Canada perceived around the world? We ask 'Canadianists' abroad — teachers and researchers — to give us their take.

You can tell a lot about people by what they believe in. Money. Art. Jesus. Bingo. All roadmaps to the soul. Stephen Harper has built his government and his career on information control and marketing. The nerd nobody liked is getting even; he now edits reality full-time. As we begin the bumpy descent towards the October election (assuming it will be called), there is only one question to be answered: can Harper (assuming he runs) market hi...

A really great read! On my mind all week. It's pretty much how I have felt since my last year or two at propel.
 
"Very occasionally, treat yourself to a dinner with a few entrepreneurs you like — it helps fight the loneliness. Otherwise, if you’re not out selling, get back to your office and work. Or go home and spend some down-time with your family."

He's right. This has to change > “Clean tech” has become a euphemism for “energy too expensive to afford”.

[audio] What is right and wrong with NB's edu system: a respected, retiring teacher and #peoplecity leader's view.
 
"The most valuable thing that you can spend on your children is being taken away: our time"
 
"The bureaucracy has become just overwhelming and all-powerful. All centralized decisions. It's all incestuous...I'm a hometown boy; I believe that the best decisions are made by local people but now all of the decisions are made in Fredericton."
 
Can a teacher be critical of what's happening? - "not at all"
 
"It's not about the children, it's about control."
 
"If we want to make a better world, education is the way to change it."

Really amazing Thai food - New Brunswick's best. There is nothing mediocre here. If you love Thai food you won't be disappointed. When I walk out the door after a great meal here I would prefer to be in the city (uptown), but reviewing the restaurant alone, it's really one of the best in town.
