Mathew Ingram Joins GigaOM

by Joey deVilla on January 11, 2010

mathew ingramIt’s another “local guy makes good” story: Mesh Conference co-founder, Globe and Mail writer and editor for the better part of two decades, all-round respected Canadian voice in tech journalism and fixture of the Toronto tech scene, Mathew Ingram is leaving the Globe to join GigaOM as one of its full-time reporters.

This is great news all ‘round: for GigaOM, who are getting a great writer to join their ranks, for Mathew, because this is a great opportunity, and for Canada – whose techies since Alexander Graham Bell have been punching above their weight class – who now has a voice in one of technology’s most important and influential blogs.

Congratulations, Mathew, and see you online!

Alexander Graham Bell was Scottish.

Anon: I think he lived here long enough for us to call him Canadian, and he did a lot of the groundwork for the telephone here as well. He’s considered Canadian enough for Canada’s parliament to have passed a motion affirming that the telephone was his baby.
