In many ways vancouver is at the heart of the new web in the last few years at least when it comes to making huge amounts of money with little to no resources. Flickr started here, Adware, casino’s and domainers etc.
What is surprising is that its actually a very small group of very smart people in vancouver that make a lot money across a lot of industries. I know some of the key players, so its always interesting to see stories like these. Probably going to turn out to be a race to see who can make a billion first from the web in Vancouver.
