Looks like Tucows is using the Ting divisions to do their next ISP project. They just bought an ISP.

I wouldn't be surprised they don't white label some ISPs (CenturyLink,Google Fiber) ? They execute pretty well.

I am ting customer.

Everything we're working on now runs on our own infrastructure or muni-infrastructure. Nothing white-label in the works, although I wouldn't count it out (we're an ISP, we like to provide service, we're pretty open about how we get it to your house).

did you ever do paper records or have you always done electronic records?

-----


I have done all paper, all EMR, and a combination of the two. The combination is the worst. So far paper alone is the winner for most situations, although even crappy EMRs have advantages over paper. Most of the problems, as I see them, come from the general baggage of enterprise software (not sold to the people who use it, likely focus of dev time is on accounting/billing stuff I never see) and an attempt to slavishly emulate paper in digital form.

Zoning on a national level in the US would be horrible. I bet it can have some draw backs in Japan when you are trying to get something rezoned.

-----


Possibly, but probably outweighed by the flexible nature of the zoning system, where more is allowed for a given zoning classification and there are fewer classifications. i.e. developers probably end up dealing with the zoning bureaucracy and politics less than they would in the US.

-----


Why would it be horrible?

How about zoning at the state level?

-----


a regional or state level would be much accurate comparison.

-----


Japan is notorious for bureaucracy. Just entering a government center and asking a simple question is sometimes enough to start a (figurative) three-ring circus.

See Ikiru by Kurosawa for an admittedly fictional and old example.
