Hollywood 'Nice Guy' Jesse Eisenberg on Bad Movies and Doppelgangers

Being a nice guy in Hollywood seems oxymoronic. I've never heard anyone refer to me as that, but it's very sweet. I don't know, that's like being called the humblest banker. If you're a working actor, you're in a very, very small percentage of very fortunate people. I think 97 per cent of union actors are out of work, and that's actors in the union.

For many Canadians, Canada Day is the beginning of their vacation. What will you do? Where will you go to unplug & reconnect? Whenever I participate on call-in shows, the most popular questions that I receive, are usually about tipping etiquette. Canadians from coast-to-coast want to know; to give or not to give and how much.

Technology is a Tiger: Powerful, but Dangerous

I think it's time to tame the tiger. Not the tawny, majestic creature that stalks the Indian jungle. The tech tiger, the wizard, the miracle, conceived in-vitro by geeky young scientists and bred in captivity by dotcom wunderkinds. I like technology. But in our headlong rush to seize its potential, we've grown heedless of its dangers.

Hey, Facebook: Stop Interrupting Users With Annoying Ads

Facebook can't fail. There are one billion users. Switching costs are just too high -- people can't go elsewhere when all of their friends are on Facebook. That's what the folks at Friendster and MySpace thought -- just before users abandoned them in droves. Facebook could be next -- especially if they keep interrupting their users.

Some Dropouts Find Success, But School Still Matters

On December 2, poet Suli Breaks posted a spoken word video titled "Why I Hate School But Love Education." Breaks' video certainly does have some positive elements but his argument is flawed in many ways. He reduces a post secondary education to something which takes place solely in the classroom. Regardless of what Breaks believes, school can foster education beyond the traditional methods.

My College Sweetheart, Facebook, Has Broken my Trust

Today my usual Facebook eye-roll was substituted for gut-wrenching panic as I read status updates linking news reports that my private messages from 2009 and earlier might have been posted to my public timeline. I joined Facebook in my first year of undergrad at McGill University. It was an innovative tool; it was a new and fun way to keep in touch with friends who were away for university. Now, however, Facebook has morphed into a site nearly unrecognizable from the website that helped me find much needed Molecular Biology notes.

Is Your Facebook Lying to You?

On May 25, I questioned and debunked Facebook's "active users" number of 900 million in a column. This month, the company admitted that their unaudited numbers are wrong and misleading. Zuckerberg may be a technological whiz kid, but he has yet to demonstrate that he can run a public company.

Facebook Should Not Be Treated like Other Media

What does Facebook sell? You could say advertising. They sell advertising to the tune of several billions of dollars each and every year. If Facebook is a media company, we then have to ask ourselves: What kind of media channel does Facebook provide and how does it compare to those other media channels?

IPO or Not, Facebook Let Us Down

Paul Barter | Posted 07.17.2012 | Canada Business
Paul Barter

Despite its inflated IPO, Facebook couldn't look more different from what we hoped it might someday be. The problem is that no one's happy: Customers are subjected to more and more ads, and the companies who created those ads aren't seeing much of a return on investment. But the IPO adds another wrinkle to the equation...
