Hack Day Finally Gets Some Press

It took a few weeks, but the Globe and Mail reporters that were hanging around our Hack Day have finally posted their story. There is also a video available for your viewing pleasure.

My favorite quote from the article is:

“Believe me, Canada is low on creativity and innovation,” he said. “Our management practices are bottom of the list.”

He cited a Conference Board of Canada report last month that essentially branded Canada as the “land of mediocrity in business.”

I totally agree. I have been reading Alvin and Heidi Toffler's new book Revolutionary Wealthand it has really got me thinking about this. There's a lot of change coming, and I'm worried that much of Canada won't be ready for it.
