Public service renewal: the weekly round up

July 25 - 29, 2011

Heya!

Welcome back.

It's summer and with long weekends and plenty of off-screen reading to do, this week, WATCH THIS if nothing else: What motivates us, anyway?

Cuts and criticism:

Cool stuff happening in the U.S.

And here at home:

  • To mark its 100th anniversary, Parks Canada launched its first mobile phone application, Heritage Gourmet, which offers more than 70 recipes tied to the country’s historical landmarks, some dating back to the 18th century. Yum, there's a recipe for Sourdough Flapjacks!!
  • If you want to learn how Canadians are communicating and interacting online, look no further than social networking sites. According to Ipsos’ most recent Canadian Interactive Reid Report special feature on Social Networking, one-half of all Canadians (50%) and the majority of online Canadians (60%) now have a social networking profile.
