Does IT really have recession-busting powers?

[a href="" target="_blank"]Innovation/a] is a key economic driver and it is more pronounced in the tech world than any other industry, bar perhaps engineering and the sciences.

Some may mock this industry, suggesting the realms of databases, datacentres, storage and the like are dull and boring. But, perhaps they are just a tad jealous that ours is an industry that is ripe with talent and modest enough to fail to realise just how good it actually is until it really matters.

IT industry at large, act now: Your country needs you.
