We didn't have Big Data centuries ago, but at one time we had cities larger than New York City. We've actually taken a lot of risk over the centuries. We ramble about technologies, Alexander Graham Bell, how Amherst was a shipbuilding centre, food indexes, our relationship with the Caribbean, economic suppression, being a Come-From-Away (CFA) and more...we're tribal too...we cover a lot of ground. We have a lot of potential. Join us.

Building a hyper loop connecting Atlantic Canada to the U.S. Eastern seaboard? Building a bridge between Cape Breton and Newfoundland? Or something more prosaic? Giant snake wave energy devices that also catch plastic? Maybe some dystopian ideas too? We go down some interesting rabbit holes with Romans dying of sepsis and the Handmaids Tale and what does it all have to do with tattoos anyway?
