My MLA, Richard Brown, is the only member of the Legislative Assembly with a real-world technology background, so he’s the closest thing we’ve got to a technology expert in the house. Here’s what he said on Tuesday, speaking about the Atlantic Technology Centre:
But I believe in technology. You have to understand, information technology is software development. Thats where the money is to be made, not in grandiose buildings. I personally would have invested in the people more than in the building myself.
Leaving out the fact that Richard is trying to embarrass the government and score politically, he make a valid point: the new economy isn’t about infrastructure, it’s about ideas.
