New Hampshire hosts thriving tech hub - Mass High Tech Business News

I bylined an article for Mass High Tech about Portsmouth's tech scene and next month's TechWorld 2010 conference. I name-dropped several hot local companies (maybe yours!) and made the case for NH as a high-tech haven. Check it out and LMK how you think we come across.

BTW, dig the head shot? Yah, that's me using the self-timer on my camera. Best I can say about it is I got my mug in the frame!  Somebody needs to take a nice, professional shot of my face someday.  Preferably somebody good with Photoshop.  ;-)

Best Wine Shop in the Seacoast

Was there any doubt?  It's Ceres Street Wine, nestled down between the Oar House and salt piles in downtown Portsmouth.

For nearly 2 decades now, proprietor Dave Campbell has been hooking up locals and tourists alike with great bottles for every occasion.  And yes, if you think the last name and dashing good looks are more than a coincidence, you're right.  I hear this sentence about once a week: "Wait, Dave is your dad?!" 

Taste of the Seacoast magazine took the voters word for it, and I think they/we did a great job finding the best this and the best that of the area.  I quibble with a few of them (Portsmouth Brewery has the "Best Beer Selection?" Really?  They only sell their own beer!) Check out the results for yourself:  How'd your favorite places fare?  Quibbles, complaints, kudos?  Have a glass of wine and see what you think.
