My experience of Toronto has always been that of a vibrant tech life, but everyone tells me that this really just started a year ago. When asked for possible causes, one name keeps coming up – that Toronto BarCamp instigator, troublemaker, catalyst: David Crow.
Living in Toronto and breathing in the tech scene is like watching a
Tipping Point example play out in real life.
What makes him special? Here’s what I think might be the key:
Passion. David’s an intense kind of person. Just ask him about Innovation Commons, for example, and he’ll speak of it with complete conviction.
Drive. His passion is backed by the determination to make things happen. BarCamp in a warehouse? Sure!
He seems to be the kind of guy who never has to worry about getting “No” for an answer because he already has five, ten alternative plans.
Learning. He learns out loud. He’s always looking for ways to improve things, and he shares his thoughts with others.
He’s a true evangelist, and what an evangelist he is.
What can I do to learn from his example, and how can I step into this whirlwind?
