Columbus - tech city


A little off topic .. but I was interested to see Columbus, Ohio, listed as number one in a Forbes.com report of a list of Top 10 Up-and-Coming Tech Cities. This is the result of work done by Philip Auerswald, professor of public policy at George Mason University.
The brief report highlights the location of Battelle in Columbus. From a library point of view, it is also interesting to note that it is the home of Chemical Abstracts.
For those that don’t know, OCLC is based in Dublin [Wikipedia], effectively a North Western suburb of Columbus [Wikipedia].
Incidentally, I thought it was good the way Contact us was highlighted at the top of the Battelle website, showing the phone numbers.
