The Montreal Gazette is planning a local tech blog

Sorry, I’ve got no links as of yet, but I met with Roberto Rocha, author of the recent piece The Invisible Industry, today. He says the Gazette have agreed to launch a blog focusing on the local technology industry, which he hopes will gain local entrepreneurs and early adopters some exposure.

    Unfortunately, if it’s coming from the Gazette it will probably be badly done — you’ll need an ID and password to read it, it won’t be searchable, and it will be full of ads from top to bottom.

    Hopefully not, but the whole experience is unspeakably bad.
