Mathematicians are the new must-have employee in the business world
CanWest News Service
Thursday, May 25, 2006

Corner office occupants beware: The war for talent has a new contender
for the title of hottest new recruit. Mathematicians, it seems, are the
up-and-coming, must-have additions to some company payrolls, now that
math is one of the core sources for innovation in a supercharged,
knowledge-based economy. With algorithms and sophisticated mathematical
modelling techniques driving so much business innovation these days,
math is much more important than brawn, says Alberta Ingenuity
communications director Mary Anne Moser. "Thirty years ago, you'd
snicker thinking a mathematician could be useful, but it's really
changed because the drivers of innovation have changed," she said.

Web Networking sites

Niche Web networking sites chase MySpace ad dollars - Apr. 19, 2006
The Internet will see a lot more targeted community launches in the coming months, both from start-up companies and established media businesses, rather than the general youth community sites that defined the sector such as MySpace.com, Facebook.com, Friendster.com, Sisterwoman.com, JokeBox.com, industry watchers say.

At least two new sites were unveiled this week. Sisterwoman.com caters to women over 21 while JokeBox.com invites users to share jokes and other funny material.
