Who are you?
Cam Linke, an Edmonton technology enthusiast, community developer, technology intern, music lover, wannabe hacker, and washed-up athlete.
What's your background?
I have a Bachelors of Commerce from the University of Alberta with a Finance major. While there I played quarterback for four years for the Golden Bears.
Currently I’m in a two year internship with the WestLink Innovation Network gaining experience in working at commercializing early stage technologies. I will be spending 8 months in a small technology company, 8 months in a tech transfer organization, and 8 months in a venture capital firm.
Why are you writing for Techvibes?
Because there is a whole lot of incredible things going on in Edmonton that nobody know about. Hopefully this will give people both inside and outside of Edmonton a chance to see some of the stuff that is going on outside of sucking fossil fuels out of the ground. I think that this can be another piece in helping to grow the emerging technology community in Edmonton.
Why should I care what you have to say?
Because the Edmonton tech community has a lot to offer and is growing like crazy, you don’t want to miss out on the action.
Anything you need to disclose?
I’m currently working for ThinkTel Communications and involved in organizing the Edmonton BarCamp/DemoCamp community.
I have a personal blog and I’m always down to meet new people. If you want to chat, learn more or get involved with the Edmonton DemoCamp/BarCamp, or meet up for coffee (or beer), fire me off an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, I’d love to meet you.
