Just Back From Canada

I’m just back from a trip to Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. This is what I learned:

  • Canadians like their strip malls
  • The .CA domain extension really does matter — I’m going to have to start using it more on Web projects.
  • Facebook was heavily used as a marketing tool, less visibility for Twitter.
  • People thought I had an accent and spotted me for an American right away, one person even pegged me  correctly for originally being a Californian.
  • Orcas all go to the top of the island for their September vacations (chasing the fall salmon runs). So . . . no Orcas were spotted, just mink, deer and harbor seals.
  • Boeing owns a big freaking yacht — are you listening Waggener Edstrom?
  • The Great Canadian Beer  Fest is very well laid out, much better spaced than the Portland Brewer’s Festival.
