Silicon Prairie: Tech Hubs of the Heartland Lure Young Talent With $160,000 Homes
J Thoendell stashed this in Tech
High prices on the West Coast are making it easier for the fresh crop of computer-science graduates and other techies to choose heartland hubs that are growing, in part, because putting down roots there doesn’t require a small fortune. The influx of tech money has already jacked up the cost of living in Seattle and Northern California, but while Silicon Valley remains the undisputed leader, startups are spreading dollars and a coastal ethos to unlikely destinations such as Provo, Utah, Chattanooga, Tennessee, and the Midwest’s “Silicon Prairie.”
If it's hard for Austin, Denver, and Las Vegas, I can't see this happening in Lincoln and Chattanooga.
Yeah, me too. A rather intriguing possibility!
the weather, the money, and the community are all needed
Now all it needs is someone to make it happen.
