I vowed, really I did, not to publish any more articles about the CBC.
So, I’m cheating a bit, because this really is about the CBC, but via the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting. (Who I also vowed not to write about, again, ever.)
But this is actually quite good.
Part of their campaign to sidetrack adverts on CBC Radio.
In return for breaking my vow, I have one request of the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting — please let us know just how many hits on the video file you get from inside the CBC.

North Shore Wants You to Can It http://ff.im/1rJBQ
We had a great time tonight at the Handsworth School Heritage Fair in North Vancouver.
Students showed off the displays they created to illustrate dozens of important events and people, all part of Canada’s heritage.
As you might expect, there were displays on historical events like Canada’s role in World War II & the underground railroad. Also, important Canadian personalities like Pierre Trudeau, Tommy Douglas – and – Geddy Lee.
I was thrilled to see a few bits of local history get their due.
One student showcased North Shore boy Bryan Adams, and included a model stage complete with guitars and PA stacks.
It’s great to see teachers encouraging this kind of thing, recognizing that history makers don’t have to be ancient, and could just as well be walking up the street in Edgemont Village.
I’m convinced that, like those buttons at the cross-walk, error reporting when your software misbehaves is simply there to make you feel better. Pressing the walk button at the light doesn’t really do anything, other than giving YOU something to do.
And all those error reports you’ve been sending to Redmond ?
Given the placating nature of these devices, I think we could all use something similar in life.
Some benign, easy to maintain error reporting. Bug tracking from birth.
How hard could it be ?
I can think of quite a few times when simply rebooting my day would have been the most productive thing to do. We already have a perfectly fine example of how this would work.
Oh, and if I do decide to restart my day ?
Please, please, make sure to lose the information I was working on.
