OK, here is the story: MontrealTechWatch was never destined to be the one-stop destination for new technologies in Montreal. Personally, this was my first blog (well to be 100% correct, I started heri.madmedia.ca 2 months earlier) and was exploring then what was a blog and how it could be used.
1 year later, MTW turned into a full-fledged web destination, that people referred to get news, to see upcoming events, see pictures of local events, … there is even a job section. This is all very good, and personally quite exhilirating, but I feel I learned all I could from the initiative.
Now, what I would like MTW to be is to turn it into an independent, self-sufficient entity, that would cover new technology, entrepreneurship, hackers, video games, events in Montreal and beyond. Also being a media entity is not a viable business model these days, so MTW is going naturally to take the path of working with local entrepreneurs and other members of the community.
Now, this is not going to happen overnight, and I am inviting everyone interested into participating into an “open” meeting, over a drink. If you also have ideas, come and expose them at the meetup. If you would like to be part of the core team of the future MTW, come and we’ll talk about this.
