N.J. governor a high-tech hall-of-famer

New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman will be the first government official inducted into the state's High-Tech Hall of Fame on Oct. 6, when she and two of the state's high-tech business leaders accept honors from the Biotechnology Council of New Jersey Inc. (BCNJ) and the American Electronics Association (AEA).

AEA, the nation's largest high-tech trade group, represents more than 3,000 domestic technology companies. BCNJ, which represents New Jersey's expanding biotechnology industry, are co-sponsors of the high-tech hall of fame.

The virtual hall of fame will debut on the Web on the night of the ceremony at www.njhightech.org, and the actual awards ceremony will be Webcast live at www.aeanet.org.

New Jersey is the seventh largest employer of high-tech workers in the U.S.
