I arrived in Montreal last night around 5pm, landed at my friend Janet’s place just before 6pm, and was whisked away to a Wiki-party soon after. This was a gathering of activists studying a one-year diploma in community economic development (CED) – wonderful crowd, everyone with very different backgrounds, but all social innovators in their own way.
I was one of two or three extra guests who weren’t in the CED program. I had a good chat with one of the other ‘extras’ about cybercartography. She works at what sounds like a very cool cross-disciplinary centre for research and lab work. It would be great, I think, if Pixel did an exhibit at some point of some high-end cybercartography. Hoping to connect with Tracy the cybercartographer later this week in Ottawa.
