Toronto is baseball crazy at the moment with the Toronto Blue Jays doing well in the American League East this year. So far. However, baseball is not the sole domain of North America. It’s huge in Asia. Specifically, Taiwan.
I was in Taipei earlier this spring and got the chance to go to a baseball game between the Elephants and Monkeys. As my son would say, “Go Primates!”
The game was pretty good. However, it was the atmosphere that I enjoyed the most. No one is drunk although they serve beer. It’s a family atmosphere even though the crowd is split between the rival teams. And the crowd is generally very well behaved even though the entire stadium is singing, clapping and cheering throughout the game. It’s amazing!
Here are some photos inside and outside the stadium.
Last week I was an official guest of the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) in Taipei. As part of my visit, I had the opportunity to visit 4 different technology companies. One of them was XYZprinting.
XYZprinting is attempting to disrupt the 3D printer marketplace with their new line of 3D printers. I wrote a piece for itbusiness.ca about my visit last week. If you’re a fan of the whole “maker movement” this might be an article that you enjoy. I hope you like it.
