The cloud of recession hangs heavily over the lush, wooded suburbs of Boston that hug Route 128, home to the largest concentration of high-technology businesses outside Silicon Valley. For several years now, the major local computer manufacturers have been in a steep decline, and the regional economy shows few signs of recovering from a virtual free-fall. Yet for companies like Unifi Communications, a start-up software firm in Billerica near Boston, the slump represents an opportunity.

What started out as a bean field in Irvine 13 years ago has sprouted into one of the country's premier technology addresses. The 3,600-acre Irvine Spectrum emerged relatively unscathed from the California recession two years ago and has been growing at breakneck speed ever since. All told, 2,200 companies employing more than 36,000 people now make their home in the business community cradled in the convergence of the Santa Ana and San Diego freeways.

For 43 years, Mary Giorgio has started her day with a glass of orange juice and a sliver of home-baked cake. She rifles through a closet too full from outings to Filene's department store. She fluffs her short hair -- once golden, now bright white. Then she gets in her car and drives to Mass at St. Susanna Parish. Giorgio and her late husband, Salvatore, moved to this Boston suburb in 1961, the same year St. Susanna opened less than half a mile from their house.
