Peter de Jaeger is known to me as the man who prepared Canada for the millenium bug. He was everywhere, TV, radio, print. Authoritative, provocative and I think is singlehandedly responsible for the fact that the year 2000 was a non event technologically speaking. So when Peter speaks out about thinking independently - I listen. Challenging as I go out on a sailboat as skipper for a week with a bunch of teenagers. "Master and Commander" comes to mind. Francis Drake was recognized as a Master sailor by his peers. His name was to strike fear into his enemies.
