I could hug you for saying this. Honestly. I'm sick to death of the empty boosterism. I'm an early art crawler back when the booze was free and everyone waited for the after-parties. When we heard the Ceeb was coming to town everyone had high expectations.

Then we discovered they didn't really produce all of their own content. Which was, I suppose, progressive but came off as lazy and sketchy to me. I'm their prime demographic for their digital service and to be honest it looks like a computer science 3rd year project or something. I only get linked to them from Reddit or Twitter and then very occasionally because I saw the original source first. I've also been told that they have a policy not to hire Hamiltonians (Paul Wilson not withstanding?). I find it all much of a muchness.

We deserve reporting. Instead of aiming for high for a ripe new field like IP video broadcasting they aimed low with a social aggregator. Sorry, that's chintzy. If I were to guess I'd say they've spent more on advertisement and real estate than reporting and community involvement. Not satisfied. In fact it feels the same as before they arrived except now they'll scrape your blog content and take your picture at Art Crawl.

Thanks Toronto.
