This is a video of Colin Carmichael and I on television from 2 years ago, shortly after he started “The Online Cambridge Reporter.”
The day after this appearance he got a call from Torstar saying they wanted to re-start The Reporter. We were kind of expecting it, so we changed the name to The Cambridge Voice, which was bought by Debbie and became The Advocate.
Colin was a visionary, he saw what was coming with social media, but we both just had too many other commitments.
James Hillis was a regular contributor there, and when he contacted me in May of this year and asked me to help with a site along the lines of what Colin and I envisioned I agreed.
When I found the video I was surprised by the similarities between where Colin and I were at the time with The Reporter, and where James and I are now at with the Citizen
If anything, The Citizen is now further along, and social media is more widely accepted.
I believe with all my heart that we are on to something new and unique here. (hmmm, By the people, for the people…has that been said?)
Once again we’d like to thank everyone for making it possible.
