Gord Hotchkiss, King of the Buzzword

After declaring himself nearly blind (sorry, only those in the room will get that one) Gord got the buzz-o-meter off to a furious start in his Summit Intro.

Gord also graced us with some great quotes...

"The answer to everything you're looking for on Google is not always Wikipedia."

And, finally, before launching into his keynote debate with Mike Margolin from RPA, Gord brought up John Whitfield from Media Post to play a human representation of the Ontario Province before lashing out again at the inadequecies of the Ontario Tourism Board's search efforts.
