I got an email from Geeks on Ice. Check it out:
I have a tentative commitement from SUN Microsystems CEO Scott McNealy to come play in the 2008 Geeks on Ice tournament. He also expressed interest in knowing more about our region. Not quite economic dev, but if I can lead him here, hopefully our “leaders” will answer the call.
I say put the Geeks on the payroll.
This is indeed economic development. Getting McNealy here and selling this province as an eager and willing place for IT development, is the best form of economic development.
For goodness sake, let McNealy’s team win! If you haven’t heard of ‘client pool’ – let me know. There must be a version of ‘client hockey’.
