    • Values Not Age Unite Us

      Demographics have been long used as a tool by which to predict behavior and differentiate between attitudes of population groups by age, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, or geography. In the marketing arena, demographics have been kind of a holy grail for predicting consumer buying patterns and targeting products and services. In the 21st century where we navigate the tricky intersection of analogue and digital communication, the generation gap is used as a way to explain the relative adaptation of different groups to digital communication tools. We live in a complex world. The

    • Sharing the Sourdough Love

        Back in January, pre-pandemic, my dear friend Fred Armstrong traveled across the Salish Sea to visit us for  a weekend.  Along with his sister Terry, and bountiful good humour, he brought me some sourdough starter. He knows I am a devoted cook, and the kitchen is my happy place. Learning to make my own bread has been  a joy-- it has also been a comfort-- both nourishing to the body and soothing to the soul. Since then, I've experimented a lot, and continue to practice and play. I've begun splitting Fred's starter, first creating a batch of rye starter for a change in flavour

      Technology Fatigue is Real

      I have technology fatigue. “Oh no,” I think, sighing, “here we go again…” It’s not the first time I’ve been through this. In recent years, I’ve suffered from Facebook fatigue, Twitter fatigue, smartphone fatigue, and even back in the day, email fatigue. In fact, I’m far enough along this journey that I can remember when the phone rang off the hook and drove me

      Do We Have the Right to be Forgotten?

While some wanted their profiles preserved or memorialized, and most wanted tangible assets bequeathed in some way, many people we talked to said that their preference

      Changing Landscapes

      As I write this, I am gazing at the view over my new balcony. Masts of sailboats bob on sparkling blue water and behind them the treeline of the forests of Newcastle Island spikes the sky. Turning to look the other way, into the living space of this high-ceilinged seaside penthouse apartment and out the sweeping windows that frame it, I have a close-up view of two tall and
