is profiled in Upside today. People are starting to take notice of Ottawa as a tech center. Everyone misses the story though. Ottawa isn’t just a johnny come lately – it has been a small but very significant player in the tech world for 30 years. It wasn’t by accident that pre-sale DEC manufactured their high-end processors there until the mid 90s. I know that voice mail as we know it today was at least partially invented in Ottawa. IBM has been doing (did?) research there (in association with the National Research Center) since the 60s. Whatever – it doesn’t really affect me cause there’s no web industry that I know of there.
