Silicon Glen

Interesting feature in today’s Scotsman about the demise of the so-called Silicon Glen, which reached its height in the 1980s under – believe it or not – Margaret Thatcher’s governments, otherwise known for shutting everything down (or selling it off).

It isn’t online, but a picture caption in the newspaper is incorrect. Ian Lang, of course, was not Scottish Secretary in 1986 (it was Malcolm Rifkind), but the under-secretary for industry in the Scottish Office at the time.
