I am in Canada, working out of my home office about 10 minutes west of Halifax, Nova Scotia. I was in Burlington, Ontario for many years, but we relocated here in mid-2018. Way less traffic. Way higher wine and beer prices (sigh). But … ocean, stunning landscapes and nature at my doorstep.
For the geographically-challenged, Halifax is on the way east coast of the country, a jog east and north from Maine. It is another hour ahead of NYC/East Coast time, so when it is 3 PM Eastern it is 4 PM for me. I traded being 150 yards or so from Lake Ontario to being a short drive from the rugged, beautiful Atlantic coastline. This vista (above) is maybe 30 minutes from my door.
Halifax has a terrific mid-sized airport that can get me in one flight to hub cities like Toronto, Montreal, New York, Boston and London (Heathrow), so when/if we all get back to normal-ish, I am anything but isolated. I also have better, more reliable Internet here on a country acreage in Nova Scotia than I did in suburban Toronto.
In Sept. 2021, Sixteen:Nine was acquired by Spectrio, a Tampa-area digital signage software and solutions firm. But I am under contract to continue editing and managing the site, so if you want to deal with Sixteen:Nine stuff, you are stuck with me.
The best way to get me, by far, is e-mail. I am absolutely terrible at responding to voice mails.
I Zoom. I Teams. I Meet. I Tweet. I have a bazillion Linkedin contacts. I look at Facebook once a year, when I get birthday messages. So forget about Facebook.
