  • The Digital Alberta BBQ happens June 11, 2009 as the digital media industry in Calgary and surrounding area celebrate the end of their program year with a shaker. Not just a BBQ there will be live music and a tour of SMART Technologies‘ new headquarters and research center.  Space for the multiple tours is limited so you must sign-up for the tour in advance and will be assigned a timed grouping. The BBQ will be held at 5:30 PM at the Alastair Ross Technology Centre with burgers, beer and live entertainment. Admission is $15. 
  • I’m currently working on a story on iPhone development in Calgary. If you’re developing anything for the iPhone and you live in Calgary, I’d love to talk to you. You can reach me at
