Love it
In other news, the City of Montreal has updated their coat of arms and logo. They apparently didn't listen much to the experts of the Canadian Heraldic Authority, because the end result is far from being esthetically pleasing!

They didn't publish the blazon on their webpage, so I'll make do. I know that there is a better way to do it, but I can't remember at the moment what is the heraldic way of saying 'a cross that is rounded at the middle' :(

Arms: Argent, a cross Gules between, a fleur-de-lys Azure in dexter chief, a rose Gules seeded Or, barbed, slipped and Vert in sinister chief, a thistle slipped and leaved Proper in dexter base and a shamrock Vert in sinister base. Over all, a pomme charged with a white pine tree eradicated Or.
Crest: A beaver dormant on a log fesswise Or
Supporters: two branches of maple leaves Vert meeting in base in saltire.
Motto: concordia salus.

Not surprising, since phones have become our primary gateway to the digital world and the action center of our digital identity.
This study focused on the damage phones may be doing to our attentiveness and general well-being.

White Paper: Harmonizing Crowdfunding within Canada

By +Lisa Boucher & +Cliff Pavlovic, Ph.D.

"In Canada, we currently have a number of entrepreneurs and dedicated inventors who do not have access to sufficient start-up capital, thus stifling innovation and economic growth. By analyzing global trends over the last few years, crowdfunding has been shown to make a huge impact in entrepreneurial and even business needs."

"An overview of the state of global crowdfunding shows that it is growing and has the ability to impact multiple industries. As for the current situation of crowdfunding in Canada, it is nascent with potential for growth. Now the role it can play in economic development is important, especially for entrepreneurship: a sector that had the most crowdfunding volume worldwide, nearly US$7 billion (in 2014)."

How Big Data Is Changing Disruptive Innovation

"[...] incumbent managers have a short term incentive to ignore the challenge [of disruptive innovation] — making best use of their existing infrastructure. Taxi companies tried to leverage regulation to preserve the value of their medallions and drivers. Nokia tried frivolously to protect its closed ecosystem and preserve employment for their thousands of Symbian focused staff members. And you can be certain that Merck, Pfizer, and Roche have strong incentives to make the best use of their high-end R&D functions before embracing the radically different path that 23andMe might take."

"And over the long term, each of these short-term decisions could lead to failure."

"With information at the core of most modern disruptions, there are new opportunities to attack industries from different angles. Uber built a platform in a fragmented limo market that let it come into transportation and logistics more broadly. Netflix captured your eyeballs through streaming video and used the data it had to blow up the content production process. Google mapped the world, and then took its understanding of traffic patterns and street layouts to build autonomous cars."

Finance and economics: What's wrong with finance

"The incentives that govern the actions of financial sector employees tend to reward speculation, rather than long-term wealth creation."
