A few weeks back, I published a summary of the new CBA Futures Report over on Slaw.ca. The input and reaction to this report is something we’ve been tracking here at Stem; as we all seem to think (in time) having a more open Canadian marketplace will inspire more creative web services. It’s difficult to say when and at what pace that type of innovation will happen, but I do believe the report outlines a path for that type of innovation.
In the aftermath of the report’s release, our internal process of ‘subject tracking’ ended up producing an aggregated list of responses and summaries from around the web. I’d like to share that list (below)… Enjoy!
