Hi Klyde and other Canadians
As to the OACS scene in Canada I have not had much contact with other Canadians; I have only met one other person that was working with OACS/ACS. But I feel that there are a few Canadians here that are silent [me being 1 :) ]. I have been considering doing a little gathering like the ones our American cousins have been holding, so if you know other Canadian that might be interested get back to me.
As to your search for a partners with strong OACS and entrepreneurial experience email me with any questions you have and we can discuss any possibility. I am aware that you are in Vancouver as I am in Toronto, which should not have any bearing on any discussion that we might have.
If there are other Canadian OpenAcs/ACS developers, marketers, watchers, business people etc., that will like to get together and share some war stories over a cold one :) email me and I will see what I can put together.
