The whirlwind of SOCAP has arrived! This week will pay witness to the conference you have seen many of us frantically running around promoting, developing and putting together. I know many of you will attend, but for those of you who don’t, keep your eye out for an email from Calgary coming shortly regarding a party this evening and other ways to participate in the big event.
However, back at the Hub, there are a couple of things I want to bring to your attention. Hub Labs are kicking off this week with the following schedule:
