Tech sector on the move

REGION

Don Benson, 53, of Watertown, a software engineer and contract worker, received only limited interest a year ago when he was looking for work.

This spring, however, he received calls from at least two dozen headhunters after posting his resume online. He landed a new one-year contract in a month.

It may not be the craziness of the dot-com boom, but the technology sector is back.

Analysts say a healthy expansion is under way, providing a spark to the state's economy, the Globe reports today in a story that also mentions the success of Hopkinton-based EMC and Waltham-based Phase Forward and Oco.
