Sometimes a visual is all it takes for a PR campaign to go viral.
Dubbed “Silicon Valley North,” Vancouver’s tech talent pool has begun to rival that of Silicon Valley. Dozens of successful tech companies have seen multi-million dollar profits in the past year and that number is only predicted to head in one direction: straight up. Tech companies are some of Vancouver’s fastest growing companies, claiming 25 of the top 60 spots in Profit Guide’s 2013 Regional Rankings and a fifth of the spots in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 released this past week. Why do some tech start-up companies break into the market successfully, others crash and burn or, worse, silently slip away into the smouldering tech graveyard?

On a recent edition of On the Media, there was an interesting discussion on the record-breaking viewership numbers of the Breaking Bad finale. The show drew 10.3 million live viewers. A couple weeks later The Walking Dead attracted more than 16 million viewers for the first episode of its fourth season. That is more viewers in the 18 to 49 age demographic than any NFL game this season. In an era of torrents, Netflix and PVRs, these are impressive numbers for cable drama.
