…”Cool Vancouver: Sorry Toronto: Vancouver is Canada’s coolest city–and it’s exporting its fashion, food and architecture all over the world”…”With more code than a Boeing jet, today’s cars are so smart they’re making us dumb”…”We let technology into our lives. Now it is starting to control us”…

SOMETHING ABOUT….stand up and take note–Vancouver is on the world map!

SOMETHING ABOUT“internet giants are accessing vast amounts of personal data and using it to shape our behaviour.”
