On a warm spring afternoon, the park on the corner of Sorauren and Wabash avenues in the west Toronto neighbourhood of Parkdale looks like a perfect dream of urban open space: a city block of green bordered by tree-lined streets, families with strollers, kids playing lacrosse, and neighbours mingling at the farmer’s market whose winter […]

PARKS IN CRISIS part 4: A tale of two parks

How Toronto invented the PC, then forgot about it

The Royal York Hotel, September 25, 1973. Computer experts Mers Kutt, Gordon Ramer, Ted Edwards, and Reg Rea are standing around a small machine about the size of a typewriter.

Hi everyone!  I recently attended a CFI Toronto meetup event.  While there, I learned that James "The Amazing" Randi would have some function in Toronto's CFI.  Apparently, he's supposed to be here in September.  In case you aren't familiar with CFI Toronto, here's a link to the CFI Ontario website.
