Traction in the Vancouver Startup Discussion

I’m getting good comment flow on my “Change Begins At Home” post over on Techvibes. While I’m not especially pleased with myself for stooping to unjustified generalizations and muckraking, it seems to be getting the right response. There is thoughtful discussion starting, and people are getting involved. That’s a good sign. Nothing worse than people being docile and uninvolved.

That said, I’m still figuring out the right tact and structure for the posts. While I’d like to get a bit more concrete in my analysis, it would seem for the moment that the advice given to me by a high-profile local investor was right: tell people stuff sucks, and they’ll rally to prove you wrong.
