Jobs & the Economy

I have blogged a couple of times about the growing IT sector in Guelph.  This led to an invitation for me to attend DemoCampGuelph.  I went last night to the e-Bar along with over 160 others from this elusive IT sector.  The place was packed. 

The evening started with a talk from an social media author.  She spoke about how social media strengthens community.  She was followed by several people who got a few minutes to pitch their latest innovation.

This is how they describe it: DemoCampGuelph is for anyone in and around Guelph interested in software, the web and technology! Startup junkies, wage slaves, consultants, students, indie professionals, engineers, designers, money and marketing guys. If you want to see and talk about some interesting things, and get to know other people in the Guelph tech community, come on out! You don’t have to demo to attend.
