Re: CBC Radio Spark Host Nora Young with CATA's CEO

CATAAlliance is an active media participant; we regularly engage with national and local reporters and columnists to explore issues and themes relevant to helping advance Canada as a Competitive Innovation Nation.  

On this week's CBC Radio program, Spark, the tech theme was "Tried, Testbed and True." Why we should brand Canada a testbed for technology in order to get our hands on the shiniest new tech first. Also, how does the traditional mechanical watch fit into today's digital world? And, even though everything is at our fingerprints in an instant, what if the internet was even faster?

Mentorship Minutes

Listen to the fifty four minute Spark program, including CBC Radio Host, Nora Young's interview of CATA CEO, John Reid (start at minute 26 for background) on why Canada should be a test bed nation for new technologies and services.
