Yes, as if doctors and lawyers weren't at the heart of technical troubles for Canada. They are all Power People, who revel in secretive bureaucratic power groups, as a model for every other wannabe to follow. What possible model would allow us to build new nuclear facilities again? Can you just order bureaucratic incompetents to produce a miracle?
Could anybody penetrate the Secret Order of Doctors to produce a digital health record? Can anybody trim the power of lawyers to probe and prod every aspect of companies? All technical people I know live in terror of Power People. Can their intellectual energy be released? Only if nobody pays any attention to them for a while, like RIM. Once successful, all companies follow the secret bureaucratic model of the doctors and lawyers.
That is why I always hunt for the little sparks of intellectual creativity. You never know where you'll find it, but you certainly know where you won't find it.... :)
