Maybe it's the weather, or maybe it's just me but I've been feeling deflated lately.

Kids got a new hamster recently and I see him run and run on that wheel and I say, crap that's me. Spinning my wheels but not moving anywhere.

Luckily I was found myself getting air back in the tires, jumping off the wheel and moving forward during a trip to Ottawa last week. I was able to connect with some great old and new friends at an event organized by the W2P community in Ottawa. It was great to hear Nick Charney, Ryan Androsoff and Hannah McKinnon speak with passion about Gov 2.0.

(Plus on a non-work related issue we went to a great concert, Goo Goo Dolls, with a group of friends this weekend too).

It's great how something as simple as connecting with friends can give you that kick that you were needing.

Part of my New Years resolution is to try and post more often, so the 5 people that read this can look for more in a couple of weeks.


  1. Hey Rod - it was great to connect w/you when you were here. Looks like I will be in Halifax on March 11. Would love to see you if you could make it to the CSPS event.


  2. Glad you were able to make it out to the Gov 2.0 event last week Rod! Also, I am pleased to have just discovered your blog...you can now make that 6 readers :-)
