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.

  1. Thanks for being there Helen, and your great comments on the wiki site. Your projects are very interesting, hope to have a chance to work with you in the future and maybe we can drag you into the CED web. :)

  2. Thanks David! It was lovely to meet some of Janet’s classmates and get a glimpse of all the wonderful things she’s had to say about the CED program. It’d be great to learn more about what you do. If no one minds, I’d certainly like to poke around on the CED web and learn more…

  3. I hope to make the web site public as is, with all the generated notes and categories from the first term, but I want to run this all by the faculty first since it is hardly “the man” I’m assailing. But you should still have the URL so feel free to look around (or email me if you don’t), and I’d be happy to chat with you about any applications you have in mind!
