Nine Shift

Canada and other advanced nations may not suffer from the U.S. killing net neutrality, according to Belhassen, from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

He has had a massive influence on me and whenever I am struggling with an issue - I think to myself "What would Dave's views be on this?". I will often google the issue and find he has some very strong opinions on the subject in question.

Earlier Dan Belhassen identified content - - the big guys like Amazon and Walmart and Google and Netflix, versus your program's content.

We can do this

Euen Semple

Sometimes I feel like giving up, conceding defeat to the marketers and "professional communicators" who have polluted our networks with industrialised social media.
