Are we risk averse in Atlantic Canada?

Are we risk averse in Atlantic Canada?

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.

Big Infrastructure and big ideas on big infrastructure. Way out.

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?

Big Education and Big Ideas in Atlantic Canada

Big Education and Big Ideas in Atlantic Canada

February 25, 2019

Will universities in Atlantic Canada be gone? Or maybe we're coming up with some really good ideas? We're not a meritocracy and maybe that's good for creativity? We've got a lot of universities and they're doing some neat things. We ramble on, with some ideas and maybe some contrary thoughts...oh a sports and David's fancy prep school experience in the States. With some sparks from Mike on Newfoundland. Join us!
