Vancouver Technology History

The Vancouver Section has a rich history of technological innovation. There are many resources available that detail our past. During this presentation, you can take a look at the PWC Techmap, view the centennial pamphlet, browse the history wiki, and hear oral history recordings of technology pioneers.




Chris has worked in Vancouver Technology over the last 35 years, specializing in systems engineering in the wireless data, communications, and computer industries, including at MacDonald Dettwiller and Motorola. He was Chapter Chair of the Section Computer Society and is currently History Chair and Newsletter Editor. In his retirement, he continues his interest in amateur radio as VE7XH.
