Nora, Liz and I sit on the east side of the Canadian Broadcasting Centre, near a window that looks out onto a construction site. For as long as we've been making Spark, we've been watching crews build the RBC Centre. The workers pour concrete, and weld, and make large objects fly by the window.
By comparison, making a radio show seems a bit less... tangible.
Yesterday, Nora interviewed Dan James about the differences between manual labour and "knowledge work." Dan is the CEO of silverorange, a web development company based in Charlottetown. When Dan's not CEOing, he's working with his hands, repairing Victorian homes.
