Agreed. Except there's one primary factor that outweighs everything:

The man is all there. He's present.

If anyone takes the time to watch the '3 Things for Calgary' launch video...it's more than an hour long...both speakers (the Mayor and Dave Meslin) have something that so many in this city simply don't possess: presence, insight and the ability to communicate effectively. (Oh, and they have visions. Silly me for forgetting that aspect...)

The medium may indeed be the message, but I'll go back to a longstanding belief: in order for authentic exchanges to take place, ultimately you have to breathing the same air.

For those who wrap their beliefs around technology, I'm obliged to point out that we weren't 'designed' with modems. We're part of the animal kingdom and all the basic rules apply, like it or not.
