The Download Returns; Google Goes to Washington

Kim Hart

Some of you may remember The Download, a column pioneered by my predecessors Shannon Henry and Ellen McCarthy. It covered the Washington technology scene from 1999 to 2006, detailing everything from the quirky start-ups and enthusiastic investors of the dot-com era, to the staples of the local networking circuit and the personalities that put the region on the map.

Times have changed since the column went dark two and a half years ago. But starting today, it's returning to take a look at the new directions this market is taking.

You can find the first column here, focusing on Google's efforts to break into the federal market. The column will appear every other Monday.

I'm just getting to know the local players, so any ideas and feedback are greatly appreciated. What are you curious about?

Glad to hear the column's back! Didn't know about Google's Federal Sales team.

However, as for the "tech scene" itself, I look forward to Google having an actual development team here...that's when they'll have a chance at looking like a DC company. In the mean time they join the ranks of many other companies with sales and policy stuff in DC. And a small team at that...
