This single biggest hill to climb in modernizing BC's Liquor Industry will be to wade through the sea of policy directives that have been put in place over the last 80 years. In fact these often conflicting policy directives, have a greater influence on the state of the union for the industry than does legislation. There is a quick and simple way to weed out the 'bad' policy and make 'good' policy. This blog post porvides that answer.

Wireless Electricity is definitely an emerging technology, the problem is that the intensity of the radio waves needed to charge mobile phones and laptop computers over long distances might be hazardous to human health, and regulators would be unlikely to approve.

Why are most wine, beer and spirit sell sheets (B2B marketing materials) written as if for critics? They should be written as if the retailer or restauranteur will be conveying them directly to the consumer don't you think.

So the Canucks seem to be practicing a lean startup approach to hockey. Find as many ways to lose in the last 2 min of a game as possible. Here's hoping they learn from it soon.

We have social proof, we have regulatory approval, we are creating a space in a $2.1B industry that brings buyers and sellers together in the beverage alcohol industry in British Columbia, Canada. What we need is about $300K in seed capital.

By giving up after a defeat, you have caused yourself to be permanently defeated by the challenge.
