I'm a communications evangelist, writer, blogger, photographer, and technology aficionado. Also a bit of a Twitter-er, so feel free to ping me (@bgrier) or read check out some of my other interests at my personal blog (http://blog.bradgrier.com).
What it’s all about:
I see this blog and my posts as part of a two-way communications street. My posts in the Future Shop Technology blog will cover a range of topics including how-tos, product reviews, technology news, commentary, rants, and documentation of my exploits in technology and communication.
That being said, I'm also looking to *you* for feedback. Comments, suggestions, all are welcome (as long as they're mostly civil :). Got a topic you'd like me to blog about, or want to see what I think about particular piece of technology? Then let me know! Ping me with a Private Message (in the Future Shop Community), or through the community forum discussions.
My first involvement in the online world started in the latter part of the 20th century (the ’80s) with involvement in the Edmonton Apple & Amiga communities and Bulletin Board Systems.
In the ’90s, I brought the Internet to broadcast television by building and operating the first website for a regional TV station in western Canada (CITV Edmonton now Global TV Edmonton).
In this century, I’ve been focusing on community media and community development, working with leading video games developers, creating an industry standard model for online communities.
