What follows is a blog post from Alex Abboud, one of the original Reboot Alberta participants. It was originally written in November of 2009. I thought it might be useful/helpful to republish it. Give it a read and reflect on what has changed in Alberta since this insightful thought-piece was originally written.
Alex Abboud is attending Reboot Alberta this weekend. He has posted his thoughts on the future of Alberta. Alex says Alberta does not need a reboot, it needs an upgrade. His point is that a “reboot implies that problems exist, but the current system will suffice to handle them.”
He disagrees. Alex believes the system and paradigm that is the conventional Alberta to today must evolve. Alex observes that “The world is changing, and what worked for us in the past is no guarantee for future success. ” He then proceeds to discuss “…where we have come from and where we need to go.”
Alex has penned one of the most evocative blog posts on the need for a comprehensive practical and yes, nuanced, conversation on the future of Alberta. He calls it Alberta 3.0. Treat yourself and create some space and time to read this blog post. You will be glad you did.
