BB is run by a 'good ole' boy' network from Southern Ontario
BB is run by a 'good ole' boy' network from Southern Ontario. Though I actually believe there can be advantages in this close-knit, trust-based social ecosystem, it is unacceptable in this day and age that a global brand should have the vast majority of its citizens derived from a section of a small province, of a small, somewhat provincial and less important country (Canada), that does not have a history of empire, or executive class with the depth or strength of character and identity as say, Sweden, or Finland. (I say this as a proud Canadian who believes that Southern Ontario businessmen are amongst the best in the world - but that no group of localites are prepared to take on such global challenges). If Apple were to be based in Wisconsin, and drew most of their talent from the state area, I'm sure Wall St. would wonder what is going on. Again - to compound the problem - it's an issue that RIM isn't really aware of. Perhaps they are intellectually, but they don't 'get it', in this regard. I hope they will.
The whole of Wall St is run by a good ole boy network, made up of 'frat brats'.
They are essentially the US equivalent of 'ole school tie brats' who run the financial system in the UK.
Most of them in both countries have never done a hard day's work in their lives and are little more than spoiled brats, who work their way up the corporate ladder by bum-sucking one of their elder 'frat brats'.
BBRY almost certainly has trouble attracting international talent willing to live in a smaller, snowy city like Waterloo. As much as I hate the fact that so many of Canada's head offices are located in one city, it would nonetheless be beneficial for BBRY to relocate to Toronto.
as long as they are based in canada, BB is screwed. because canucks are the dumbest people in the western hemisphere. and that, you dumb #$%$ canuck, is a fact.
never bet on a country with weak, dumb, simple people, with no culture or taste of their own. canucks and BB are much like their claim to fame of food - poutine - plain, lumpy, clumpy, runny, and bland. and nobody wants it.
