    Canada's Digital Future with OpenMedia.ca and Anti-Harper music

    in Politics

    October 19, 2015. General election day in Canada. The list of offenses and overstepping authority from the Harper government is long and ever growing. A million issues and even more complaints. One of the more consistent complaints is the never ending assault on the digital rights of Canadians.

    OpenMedia.ca was established in 2008 and has led the fight to protect the rights of Canadian internet users. Over 250,000 of us contributed to the Our Digital Future policy. It is all encompassing and detailed. There is a vote pledge that signifies that Canadians are aware of the abuses in the digital realm by the Harper government and there are some questions that all candidates should be forced to answer before getting our votes.

    David Christopher from OpenMedia.ca joins us once more to describe the massive amount of work it took to develop the Our Digital Future policy and how Canadians can get involved. There are five principles to the Declaration of Internet Freedom. Expression. Access. Openness. Innovation. Privacy. Numerous pieces of dubious legislation like C-13, C-51, S-4 and S-8 have come down the line from this CPC crowd. Be informed and know how to counteract them and help prevent the loss of our Charter Rights and Freedoms.

  • The View Up Here talks Canada's Digital Future with OpenMedia.ca

    in Politics

    October 19, 2015. General election day in Canada. Perhaps the last chance to prevent the irreversible changes to the country that Harper and his machine want to execute. The number of issues caused by CPC malfeasance to this point is never ending. They have had a decade to pervert this once respected nation into insignificance. Internationally and domestically.

    Since 2008, OpenMedia.ca has been a leading voice in keeping Canadians aware, informed and able to counteract the measures taken against digital rights. The Declaration of Internet Freedom has five fundamental principles. Expression. Access. Openness. Innovation. Privacy.

    Shaped by more than 250,000 people and launched last week, "Canada's Digital Future" is a crowd-sourced election platform packed with ideas from everyday citizens. This initiative of digital rights is urging people to consider Canada's digital future when casting their vote this election. While OpenMedia won’t be endorsing any political party, it does plan to meet the main parties and report back as to which are most committed to implementing its platform. Thousands of people have already pledged to vote for the future of the Internet in the upcoming election.

    “Whether it’s telecom price-gouging, reckless spying legislation, or abusive copyright notices, failed digital policies are hurting Canadians,” said OpenMedia’s communications manager David Christopher. “Young people in particular are speaking up for a better way forward, because Canada can’t afford to keep falling behind our international counterparts. That’s why this election will be the most important Canadian Internet users have ever faced.” David joins us to tell us about how your digital rights are under attack. And what OpenMedia.ca is doing on our behalf.

    Join us. Know your enemies.

    IT Life Radio: The Evolution of Crowdfunding

    in Technology

    Most people think about Kickstarter or Indiegogo when they think crowdfunding. And that's still a big part of the scene, but enterprises are starting to use crowdfunding, even companies you associate with strong analytics, forecasting and supply chain abilities. Big companies like Disney and Timex are in the crowdfunding business now.

    That's because crowdfunding is helping to flip the manufacturing process. It used to be that you'd design a product, try to figure out how many you'd sell, build them, and then sell them. Now, you design the product, try to sell a bunch and then build exactly the number you need. Less waste. Less risk. More profits.

    But that's hard to do and it comes at a cost in complexity and in technology needs. On the latest episode of IT Life Radio, we'll talk about how changes in crowdsourcing are affecting large and small enterprises and what IT pros need to know about those changes.

    Chris Tsai is co-founder and CEO of Celery, a pre-order platform for launching new products. Chris studied quantitative marketing at Wharton, computer science at MIT and built his first PASCAL program when he was 12. The son of a serial entrepreneur, he has been working on tech and social finance startups since college. Before creating Celery, he led Groupon’s expansion in Asia.
