The Canadian tech stories we don’t talk about enough (CanCon Podcast Ep. 122)

1Password

Even in the fast-growing world of Canadian tech, the firehose of news can slow to a dribble in the summer months. For the CanCon podcast, that’s not a problem, but an opportunity to change our focus from the latest news to the Canadian tech stories not often discussed.

This week, Communitech’s Chris Plunkett joins to help give some shine to those stories: the great Canadian tech apps that rarely make the headlines; the dearth of Canadian tech reporting; an ecosystem more in love with its own narrative than winning.

Consider it the perfect companion to you summertime backyard barbeques – make sure to save us a bite.
