Puget Sound’s tech genealogy depicted on new WTIA poster

After a year of research, the WTIA today is releasing a new poster with “a visual history” of the Puget Sound region’s tech industry, loosely tracing the genealogy of a galaxy of companies back to Microsoft, Boeing, McCaw Cellular, the University of Washington, Aldus and Amazon.com.

WTIA funded the project after it was approached by Heike Mayer, co-director of the Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech University, who has done similar maps for regions such as Portland and Boise. Surveys and reviews have been going on since January 2007, leading to the $15 poster that goes on sale today and a free, interactive online version.

“It certainly is a nice story for the six foundational companies,” said WTIA President Ken Myer, who is presenting the poster at a breakfast event this morning.

It’s also wall candy for local tech entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and service providers plotting their next sales call. Click to take a closer look here:
