Technology industry in PA; books for summer reading

Written by Scott LaMar, Smart Talk Host/Executive Producer | Jun 19, 2012 6:47 PM

Radio Smart Talk for Wednesday, June 20:

The technology industry is growing all the time in Pennsylvania.  In fact, new high-tech products and businesses are being developed seemingly every week.

It is one of the few industries in a sluggish economy that features business start ups and high-paying job creation.  Statistics indicate there are more than 205,000 Pennsylvanians working in the tech industry, making an average of $81,000 annually.

That's not to say the technology industry went unscathed by the Great Recession.  Capital investment money was harder to come by and many would-be entrepreneurs just had to survive.  

HI-tech today appears to be driven by consumers, who just can't enough data-streaming and communications devices and the medical field that is looking for better ways to exchange health information.

Appearing on Wednesday's Radio Smart Talk will be David Bonsick, the new president and CEO of TechQuestPA, an organization that works with and lobbies for tech companies at the state capitol.

Also, Jon Walker, who blogs book reviews at www.jonosbookreviews.com joins us to highlight several books for great summer reading.
