Going global with the G20 YEA Summit In January, while attending the monthly board meeting for the local networking organization SYPE (Saskatchewan Young Professional and Entrepreneurs), Stephanie Yong, the Director at the W. Brett Wilson Centre for Entrepreneurial Excellence, brought to light an event for entrepreneurs the SYPE community may have interest in. The event in question was the 2013 G20 YEA Summit in Moscow Russia.

When you first pick up one of Canon's higher end DSLR'S - video is good, but not great. The EOS system offers only a few simple in-camera settings to play around with and nothing more. Although you may be happy with what Canon has to offer, people like myself are always looking for more functionality and better performance. If you're like me and want to see your camera's video quality improve in only two steps, I would encourage you to follow along. First step - picture styles. Out of the…
To build a great home requires technical finesse and execution, it is not something which simply manifests out of the blue. A home owner starts with a vision, and begins the process of bringing their vision to reality.

It's 2013 and filmmakers no longer have an excuse for poor video quality. Last year 70% of the Navy Seal film "Act of Valor" was shot using the Canon 5d Mark II, a pro-sumer digital camera you can purchase at your local Best Buy. Countless other short films and the series finale episode of the hit TV show "House" were also shot using the 5d. Average joe filmmakers such as myself may not have access to the 00 lenses being used on large budget shoots, but we're getting close. As…
Wether in casual conversation or in the midst of boardroom project pitches, we are often asked why we opt to use an open source CMS (Content Managment System) over a CMS custom built for the project. We (DangerDynamite) choose to lean in favor of the open source model for our projects, even though it means going against the norm in the web development industry.

A good website can do much more than that though – it can engage your customers and motivate them to interact…

Your brand is a critical part of your business and the name is half the battle. More often than not brands do not put as much value on domain management as they should. Registering your domain might seem like a small detail in the bigger picture but often it can make all the difference. The same attention to detail should be invested in your domain as you would invest in storefront signage or selecting the right location for your business. The folks over at domainnamesales.com have come up with a…
