Toronto tech sector booming but spelling is a problem
Toronto's ambitious new diversity-focused tech festival kicked off on Tuesday with a series of rousing, TED talk-style speeches at the Sony Centre.
About 3,000 people attended the all-day event, but everyone else could get the play-by-play via Twitter.
Unfortunately for the person who prepared his slides, it was also one of the most-photographed.
Is it petty to point out the glaring, boldly underlined spelling mistake behind our mayor's head?
However, our spelling is slipping behind.— Barry Stevens (@BarryKStevens) September 12, 2017
The Elevate Toronto Festival, which runs until Sept. 14th, continues today with panels and sessions on artificial intelligence, biometrics, genomics, VR, AR, FinTech, Blockchain, and a whole bunch of other smart things that are thrusting our city forward.
Our spelling industry may not be thriving, but our tech industry certainly is – and that's a good thing, economically speaking.
Spelling skills don't pay the bills like innovation does.
