Mark and Dave Forde have announced Toronto Tech Week which is running the week of the mesh conference. I’ve created an Upcoming.org Toronto Tech Week group to try to keep track of all of the events as they get announced.
Toronto's Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry cluster will come together to celebrate being the largest high-tech hub in Canada and the third largest in North America. During this event, named â€œToronto Technology Weekâ€ (TTW) a series of activities will be undertaken to showcase the depth and breath of Toronto's high technology sector. These will include trade associations' events such as seminars and business networking functions, job fairs, collaboration demonstrations, an ICT business open door program, school projects, educational seminars, special exhibits showcasing innovation & excellence and other ICT sector-related activities. An organizing committee formed by ICT industry stakeholders representing a cross-section of this industry, in both the private and public sectors, has been formed to implement this initiative.
I love that the policy wonks (sorry Mark) call this sector ICT Information and Communication Technology.
I guess this means that we need to set a date and find a location for BarCampTorontoTechWeek. My guess is that with a large number of events happening in the city during that week, it may be difficulty (if not near impossible) to find space to hold a BarCamp. Maybe we can do this again at the MSN.ca offices. Or perhaps there is another venue. Suggestions?
