Ottawa, Ontario; Toronto, Ontario.
At Climate Ventures space @csiTO for afternoon meeting. Discussed programs, research, potential peer circle topics. Open to new ideas for the new cohort. I'm thinking that starting small may work better for emerging methods. (Centre for Social Innovation, 192 Spadina Avenue, Toronto, Ontario) 20181004
Three or four cooks in front of the grill, and we saw at least four others dressed in whites. Orders printed out on long paper tape were called out and fired. The pace picked up after two hours into our tasting menu service, as the first seating of customers peaked on main courses. Watching an experience team in practice was a unique experience in the family celebration of RDI's 25th birthday. (Richmond Station, Richmond Street West, Toronto, Ontario) 20180910
Willet Creek flows south into the Don River West, after the bridges over the lower walks of the park. Absences of one son in California and another on an airplane is okay, they know the course well. (Edward Gardens, Lawrence Avenue East, Don Mills, Ontario) 20180824
Crowds @TOXmasMkt Wednesday night 8:30pm @DistilleryTO. Lineups at poutine shack, couples taking selfies. Many young adults, a few children at attractions. Not shopping, just cycling through. (Distillery District, Mill Street, Toronto, Ontario) 20181212
Sunset on Lake Mendota, just north of state capital building. Further along the shore, U. Wisconsin Madison campus, where i attended in an ISSS meeting in 2008. Only a short visit on this routing, to deepen some intuitions on systems knowledge with a retired professor. (James Madison Park, E. Gorham Street, Madison, WI) 20180814
