mdemeny Re:Who would want to follow... (166 comments)

Also, the link is about 2 years old - it claims Steve Jobs as a tech loser too... when in fact Apple is now #2 in the world in market cap (after Exxon). How quickly things can change...

MS Moves R&D To Canada Due To Immigration Problem

mdemeny Re:ahem.... (765 comments)

I concur.

For years I spent all my time travelling to the US where I did more than my share of encouraging negative stereotypes of Canada: "yes, *of course* I ride dogsleds to my work igloo in July".

As Vancouverites, we really need to start putting the DTES on our tourism and recruiting ads otherwise I'll never be able to have a shoebox condo of my very own. It's getting bad enough trying to dodge those Paris Hilton wannabees (complete with small dog incapable of walking on its own) on my seawall walk to work.

Minister pushing "Canadian DMCA" smears opponents

mdemeny mdemeny writes  |  more than 4 years ago

mdemeny (35326) writes "MP James Moore, responsible for submitting Bill C-32, essentially the Canadian DMCA, complete with legal protection for DRM has managed to smear all opponents of the bill as "radical extremists". Of course, this includes a pretty large list of people: consumer groups, retail groups, electronics vendors, the disabled, librarians, content creators, etc. etc.
