#FollowFriday – Bitcoin, the World Wide Web, and the future of work

For today’s edition of our #FollowFriday post, we’ve rounded up a list of three people whose tweets are retweet-worthy. Whether they tweet on startups, digital marketing techniques, or advocate for a free Internet, these three individuals are worth a click on the “follow” button.

(And in case you’re not on Twitter, #FollowFriday, or #FF, is a Friday standby where Twitter users recommend a list of accounts to others. For example, you might tweet, “#FF @itworldca @itbusinessca @compdealernews” to encourage your followers to follow these accounts, especially if you see value in their tweets).


As the president and founder of Elite Email Inc., Robert Burko tweets primarily on digital marketing, as well as solid strategies to reach customers. As of late, however, he’s been blogging for ITBusiness.ca on two other hot topics – Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation and Bitcoin, sharing his experiences as a business-owner on how to handle both of these in the context of the small to mid-sized business market.

He’ll also be a guest expert on our #BitcoinITB Twitter chat on March 20, at 1 p.m. ET, as Elite Email has been accepting Bitcoin for a few years. Check out the details of our chat here.



As a radio station providing breaking news and analysis for the Vancouver, B.C. area, CKNW reports on all kinds of local news. This week, morning radio host Philip Till interviewed ITBusiness.ca editor Brian Jackson about the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web.
