Ottawa tech folks know Tony Patterson’s SCAN as the news source for the local technology industry. Since last fall, Tony has been chatting with a few of us, myself included, about how to broaden the appeal of SCAN. Last week he unveiled a new SCAN focused on the Ontario Technology Corridor, from Ottawa through Windsor. With 6,000 companies and 250,000 workers in the Ontario tech industry, he plans to cover everything form bio-tech to software and the communications industry. The format of the site is easily digestible, with quick single paragraph stories and longer pieces from invited bloggers and tech executives.
If you have an interest in Canadian tech businesses, visit the new SCAN and let Tony know what you think.
