CIRA Canadian Internet Registration Authority, Networking Party at Panorama in Toronto

Post by on Nov 29, 2013

On Wednesday 27th 2013 the Canadian Internet Registration Authority CIRA hosted a member’s networking event at Panorama Lounge atop the Manulife Centre. It was a raucous con-flab of Canadian webmasters fifty two floors above the city. When I showed up at 4:30pm, I happened across the ground troops streamlining the route to the destination through the Manulife Centre with the necessary signage. The Canadian Internet Registration Authority is a member-driven organization that manages Canada’s .CA domain name registry, develops and implements policies that support Canada’s Internet community, and represents the .CA registry internationally in treaties and trade talks. These semi regular get togethers are a great opportunity for members to meet to other Canadian webmasters and learn more about C.I.R.A’s politics. We all like to share our views about Internet issues in Canada, and around the world (NSA spying) with other internet citizens. CIRA Board of Directors, staff listen to… Read more »

Google’s climate of secrecy has spawned a highly specialized voodoo science that is Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Guerrilla Game Show Promotion on Busy Toronto Street Corner is Success Story for Surround Integrated Marketing

Post by on Jul 14, 2013

Thursday 11 July 2013 Geoff Whitlock of Surround Integrated Marketing executed a promotion on the southwest corner of Canada’s busiest intersection, Yonge and Dundas Square in Toronto.  Geoff hoped to record some digital media, and make some human memories, and raise awareness for Rubbermaid All Access Organizers. Like a true guerrilla marketer, Geoff had only a rough idea of how it would all work when he arrived at the location. He quickly surveyed the scene and claimed the best available spot, (as per his permit) which was a patch of empty sidewalk opposite the entrance to Sears, just south of a five horn mariachi band.  These talented wind instrumentalists provided excellent musical accompaniment for the craziness that followed; their music was well suited to Geoff’s 1970′s game show theme. I said to Geoff, ‘This band is going to work out perfectly for you’, and he said, ‘I feel bad for… Read more »

Green Building Means Bird Friendly

Post by on Jul 10, 2013


Getting your bird on, and becoming more aware of bird friendly building techniques and avian wildlife conservation strategies helps make life easier for the birds, which in turn helps make our cities cleaner, healthier and more interesting places to live.   Birds live in our cities too; they eat insects and fill the trees with song, and they add to the diversity of nature in our urban ecosystem. Fuel Ghoul explains how property owners who seek a ‘Bird Friendly Building’ designation from the City of Toronto, understand how this could bring some market advantage to business and commercial leasing on site as awareness rises for the plight of birds in our cities. HBC Integrated works with building owners, architects and property developers to build and maintain an urban structure’s bird friendly building profile. The team works best when hired before builders break ground to consult with architects and engineers to design… Read more »
