New month, new biotech hotspot

Seems to me that Edmonton is missing something.

  1. A notable exclusion given the hiring trend. Mind you, perhaps it's because because the site in Edmonton focuses on process development.

  2. I like how most of those sites on the picture are universities, which corresponds with the fact that Canada trains a lot of the American technology workforce and if you can't find a good job at a university, you better get ready to leave your cold, frozen Wasteland that you grew up in and love (er.. I mean Edmonton) for somewhere more hospitable to human life. And if you can't find a job in Vancouver, then most of the time you end up in the States.

  3. LOL, love the moose. No idea how there's no hockey player or Mountie in red serge on there....

  4. uncle sam - you must have never been to Edmonton on a beautiful July day (which lasts 17 hours), preferable to the scorching heat of the southern US or Boston's swamp-like humidity

    1. It probably wouldn't keep me warm through the 10-month winter, though, or bright through the six(seven?)-hour winter days.

    2. If you happen to be in the same latitude as Edmonton in July for recreation, you should probably be 400km to the West hiking in the Rockies and soaking in hot springs, or even further on the coast. Anything less will not give you enough nice memories to last through December in Edmonton, never mind even to the time when the Oilers making the playoffs becomes a mathematical impossibility.
