Creative Classes in Vancouver
Creative Classes in Vancouver

I’ve been talking about building a list of creative classes in Vancouver for some time, and so I’ve started today I’ve started the first draft:

Vancouver, Canada: The World’s Bitcoin Hub
Vancouver, Canada: The World’s Bitcoin Hub

The City of Vancouver in Canada has been tagged as Canada’s Tech Capital. Gregor Robertson, Vancouver’s mayor, declared, “Technology is now a critical part of Vancouver’s economy.” Looking at Vancouver’s history and technology timeline, it shows how Vancouver’s economy was transformed by technology through time. A great part of the city’s tech history is the first Bitcoin ATM that was opened in 2013 at a coffee shop in downtown Vancouver. The ATM installed at the Waves Coffee House can convert bitcoins to Canadian dollars and dollars to bitcoins. The machine was launched by Bitcoiniacs, now Cointrader, a bitcoin exchange company based in Vancouver in partnership with Robocoin. The city is now dubbed as a bitcoin hotspot. The Bitcoin ATM is not only first in Vancouver; it is the first Bitcoin ATM in the world.

Is my website mobile friendly?
Is my website mobile friendly?

If you read Google’s announcement on Feb 26, 2015, the first question you likely asked yourself is — is my website mobile friendly? Google announced that starting April 21st, they will consider how mobile friendly your website is, as a ranking signal. This means if someone searches for your business from their mobile — a smart phone such as an Android, Blackberry, or Apple iphone, or from an ipad or tablet, Google may lower your search results, or not even show your website in the results at all.

Introduction to Google Plus
Introduction to Google Plus

Why should you care about Google Plus, over Facebook pages? The main reason, as my friend Janice Mansfield (+1M followers!) told me years ago, Facebook charges you to reach the audience you worked so hard to build. Say for example you’ve piqued the interest of 1,000 people to follow your Facebook page, no doubt that would have taken a lot of your time and/or money. However you might think when you post something to your Facebook page now, all of your hard earned audience will see your post, but this is not the case. Only a small fraction of your audience, or Likes, will see your post. On Facebook, you need to pay for the privilege of reaching your own audience, and that ratio of organically reached vs paid reach is stretching every day.
