When Michael Mccul­lough, ed­i­to­rial di­rec­tor of Bcbusi­ness and pub­lisher of Canada Wide Me­dia, started writ­ing about B.C.'S up­start tech­nol­ogy in­dus­try as a Bcbusi­ness as­sis­tant ed­i­tor in the early 1990s, it in­volved a lot of driv­ing to sub­ur­ban busi­ness parks in Rich­mond and Burn­aby. Now, in “Tech Will Eat Down­town” (p.64), he ex­plores how tech­nol­ogy has be­come the largest con­sumer of of­fice space in down­town Van­cou­ver.

For “In­dus­trial Dis­as­ter” (p.56), Van­cou­ver pho­tog­ra­pher Lind­say Siu shot Peter Spotzl and Ben­tad­dei at an in­dus­trial workspace and a con­struc­tion site. They were “open, en­gag­ing and very wel­com­ing,” she says. “Find­ing the per­fect spot at each lo­ca­tion was prob­a­bly the trick­i­est part.” Af­ter study­ing un­der pho­tog­ra­phers Jeff Wall and Roy Ar­den for a BA in art his­tory and stu­dio arts at UBC, Siu took Lan­gara Col­lege's pho­tog­ra­phy pro­gram.
