Backbone200 - Best of Canadian Tech

Been over a week since I last blogged, but the world is still intact, right? Paid work always trumps blogging, and business has been good lately, but I've got a window now for a quick post.

Backbone magazine does a nice job tracking the Canadian tech scene, and the current issue is especially noteworthy. This is their big state of the market overview, presented as a series of short "best" lists for a whole bunch of topics and trends. It's a great way to quickly gauge what's hot - people, companies, technologies, resources etc., and they compiled this by speaking to a lot of different people, including myself.

I commented mainly on the VoIP space, where I cited 5 vendors to watch - Avaya, Microsoft, Metaswitch, Mitel and ShoreTel. Pretty hard to do justice to this market with a sound byte, but am happy to take things further if anyone is interested.

Otherwise, this feature is an informative, breezy read, and without further ado, here's the link.
