Absolutely phenomenal. Thanks for sharing this, Kees! I would have never found this. Reminds me of hanging out at the Commercial on Whyte Avenue!

Nice deconstruction of the spin put onto the world of knowledge work. Interesting to note how this has been going on for a very long time—my experiences prior to dot bomb elicit a déjà vu too response.
 
This is a remarkable decoding of standard startup jargon when it comes to recruiting and hiring. Good stuff to know.

Out of misfortune comes a realization that the majority of people are good, generous, kind and caring human beings. Beautiful lesson for us all, Cathy! Thank you for writing this so well, and sharing it with us!

THIS is where it's going! If you've ever heard me rant about digital media and the copyright wars, this is what I mean. Scum, money-grubbing scum.
 
Canipre Admits It's Behind Voltage-TekSavvy File Sharing Lawsuits With Speculative Invoicing Scheme

Canipre, a Montreal-based intellectual property rights enforcement firm, has admitted that it is behind the Voltage file sharing lawsuits involving TekSavvy in what is described as a "speculative invoicing" scheme. Often referred to as copyright trolling, speculative invoicing involves sending hundreds or thousands of demand letters alleging copyright infringement and seeking thousands of dollars in compensation. Those cases rarely - if ever - go to court as the intent is simply to scare enough people into settling in order to generate a profit.

Canadian Business reports that Canipre's goal is to import the speculative invoicing strategy to Canada and that it found a willing partner in Voltage Pictures. Canipre collected thousands of IP addresses that are alleged to have downloaded Voltage films and Voltage is now asking the Federal Court to order TekSavvy to disclose the subscriber names linked to the IP addresses. 

The Canipre admission is important because it is consistent with arguments that the case involves copyright trolling and that the Federal Court should not support the scheme by ordering the disclosure of subscriber contact information...

Federal judges are beginning to rule against these copyright trolls and their shakedown tactics.

REALLY? This is pretty awful!
 
For the past half year, you've been sending your username and password to the Apple App store in clear text. No shit. Anybody could have your username and password.

I don't EVER want to hear somebody telling me how secure iOS is ever again. This is completely and totally unacceptable.

Android is actually getting really nice. I'm running Jelly Bean and the UI is actually quite beautiful. I find the iOS UI is starting to look really dated. Google seems to have stepped up their design on everything recently and I'm liking where it's headed.

Employment
  • BeeMCee Consulting
    Principal, 2005 - present
    Consulting in things that move the story forward. Engage with technology to make your life better. Managing content, including creation and destruction. Optimizing process. Understanding complexity. Organization, value and realistically sustainable growth. Knowledge and compassion need to balance each other.
  • E-Cubed Media Synthesis Inc.
    Conceptualize things, 2010 - 2011
    Content Management Systems are essential to organizational effectiveness. I’m not so sure that people need to spend 5-figure sums and more to license software to do so, but let’s experiment and see.
  • Intrawest
    Director of Relationship Managent, 2002 - 2003
    There was once a bright and shining vision of a recreation and vacation property corporation, that should have succeeded in optimizing the flow of information and streamlined the technology infrastructure across the far-flung realms. Alas, when ten different units think that each of their various ways of doing things are the best and only way, and no imposition of logic or power can impose another view upon those petty satraps, dissolution ensues. But thanks for getting me back to Canada!
  • CapGemini
    Senior Manager, 1996 - 2001
    Technology Consulting Group FTW. What feels better than being the guy everyone comes to for the answers? Being in a group of 60+ guys who either know the answers, or know the people who know the answers. This collection of people worked more Clarkean magic, with less resources, and bigger results, than any army in history could ever have done. It was a pleasure to serve with you all, and we did an awful lot to change the world. Hopefully for the better.
  • Cisco Systems
    CapGemini Business Development Liaison, 1999 - 2000
    When Cisco wants to do something big, they make it happen. When Big-5 IT wants to influence those big things, they parachute somebody in to watch what’s happening, and hopefully help steer the ship. I was that guy. It was awesome. But then the Dot Bomb loomed. Technology, outstripping the economy’s ability to adapt, and fearful of it’s very survival, the Economy killed Internet 1.0. That’s OK. Phoenix metaphors are awesome too.
  • Times-Mirror International Publishers
    Manager, IT Systems, 1991 - 1996
    Taking the 19th Century processes for creating information artifacts and moving them directly into the 21st Century. Introducing the Gentlemen’s industry to the Internet. Safely. Yes. You will be able to e-mail the person sitting next to you. As well as the author you’ve been avoiding. And that author will now be e-mailing you. Get used to it.
  • Alberta Department of Transportation
    Survey Systems Technologist, 1981 - 1986
    Say what you will about Government, at least there used to be room for evolution & experimentation, if the right people were in the right places. No, we are no longer going to type up training manuals on IBM Selectrics, covering up the mistakes with white out. No, we are not going to fill in inventory records on Index Cards. Yes, we will be computerizing the collection of survey data, so that computers can do really quickly what people with calculators were spending tons of hours doing.
  • Prairie West Gasline Inspection Services
    Survey Crew Chief, 1980 - 1981
    Getting domestic gas distribution systems into the ground, with the cooperation of land owners, and liaising with the construction companies doing the installations. It’s way harder than it sounds.
  • Palmer Engineering
    Surveyor, 1978 - 1980
    Learning the ropes about the gas pipeline industry. Plastic pipelines are hard to find once they’re buried, unless you also bury a wire in the same trench. Many, many miles of plastic and aluminum pipeline later, I can proudly say that you have a gas furnace south of the Cypress Hills in southern Alberta, I’m probably the guy who figured out how to get the gas to you.
  • WD Usher and Associates
    Chainman, 1977 - 1978
    Fresh out of high school—yes, people used to do that, back then—I discovered WHY trigonometry was important, that lasers and microwaves make great measurement tools, as well as light shows and popcorn, and that a chainsaw is a mighty tool of vision, as well as an annoying buzzing that rings in a person’s ears for hours after it’s switched off. Oh, and I perfected my truck-stuck-in-mud techniques too.

Big O. It’s a tire place. They hire knowledgable, friendly people, who know how to help, and really go out of their way to take care of their clientele. I don’t know who that guy was that gave a bad review three years ago, but I’ve been using Big O’s service for about 8 years now, and have never been disappointed or unhappy.

Fresh-baked goods, great coffee drinks, and a surprisingly novel deli. Very continental!

Only been once, but it was memorable, a treat from our grown-up kids to thank us for helping them out when they needed it.

Reliable, great service. The only way to get back on the Island after 9:30, if you don't have your own boat! Also, a good way to catch up on your Vinyl Café—Stuart McLean has ALWAYS been on the speakers when coming back from Horseshoe Bay…
