With the recent resurgence of the technology startup community in Cape Breton, I thought it might be useful to take a look back at the history of the tech sector here. I had a pretty good seat from which to watch it unfold over the past 20 years, so I figured I may as well be the person to do it.
I first asked some friends on Facebook if anyone would be interested in reading about the history of the local tech sector. A few said they would, and Steven Rolls commented, "Better question … do you think anyone would believe it?!" Boy, is he right about that. I suspect you may not believe some of what you read here, and that's ok.
I'm going to give you a first-hand account of what really happened in public and behind the scenes. I name names ... over 100 of them ... and their roles in doing good things or bad things for Cape Breton.
