Rick and Shel’s Excellent Adventure

Rick Segal is doing a three week road trip this summer with Shel Israel.  They’re networking with entrepreneurs everywhere, and Rick’s side agenda is to promote Canada as a great place to set up shop, as opposed to Silicon Valley.  I agree, to a certain extent, but part of what makes Silicon Valley special is the immense number of network opportunities available to people there.  This comment on Rick’s post, from JigZaw’s Shannon Clark is especially worth reading.  It neatly illustrates the conundrum that all tech centers outside the Valley face, including Toronto and Ottawa.  And that, by the way, is the point of efforts like Mesh, Barcamp, and DemoCamp. 

What else could we be doing to better network? What do you think?
