Hello David, I read your columns in The Armchair Mayor and find them informative.
Would the following be worth a column by you?
With the proliferation of cell phones, ipads, and all the other electronic easy-carry gizmos with cameras, people are extremely discourteous with their use of photography, filming and recording. I guess when out in public, anything goes, but I’ve been surprised and annoyed with those who think it is okay to film and record at private gatherings without asking permission. This isn’t just young people but some of my mature friends at social/music private parties do the same. When I ask them to stop and tell them that we don’t allow it, they seem offended. Some even post their recordings on facebook and other social media! Why normally courteous people are so thoughtless (bordering on rude) when they have a camera in hand is puzzling to me. Do you know?
I think a lesson in courtesy and etiquette in the use of filming/recording devices would be useful.
Hi Trish: Your complaint of rude camera behaviour is well deserved. Regrettably, I have a list of topics. You’ve almost written a column here. Why not write 500 words and I’ll publish it on my site. David
Hi David , would you know the name of the company in Europe who is in competition with BEE Vectoring Tech?
No I don’t. The Globe and Mail never mentioned the name of the European company. The reporter, Ivan Semeniuk, might be able to tell you.
Hi David, I’m undertaking some research on the Kamloops Community Network and I read your post from 2015. I’m wondering if you might have a chance for a brief call. I would like to get your thoughts on the network and some background information if possible. All the best, George
Hi David, I am aware of what I speak of, could you please give me a call and I can explain 2503191088 Thanks Reid
