Nice timing. After hearing that one of our meeting attendees the
other night had done work on open source programs for his degree, I
figured I needed to find out more about the innovation program at
Carleton that he mentioned. And then this morning, this news release
arrives in my inbox... I will have to find out more, to see if there are
interesting partnership opportunities.

> Students and professors in Ontario academic institutions contribute

> source and open environments being undertaken at Carleton University.
> The Talent First program is led by Carleton faculty and students
> associated with the Technology Innovation Management program (TIM), a
> graduate program offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Design. It
> benefits from the experience gained from the Carleton University
> Foundry Program to promote an entrepreneurial culture on campus and
