The case for moving tech jobs to Iowa. When I lived out west, the husband of one of my wife’s colleagues was making inquiries about starting a tech company and found himself on the phone with the governor. He points to numerous cases of tech companies opening offices in unexpected places (including Dubuque, Iowa).

Will robots usher in shared wealth or a more divided society? Some have argued that automation is a driving factor behind the current stagnation of wages, but Dave Schuler isn’t convinced.

A part of me hopes that there’s more to this story than the guy is letting on. Some sort of suspicious behavior that warranted the attention, or that the incident was not what he says it was. The other part of me feels bad for hoping that a guy that might have been unduly harassed is a liar. Anyway, it’s the story of a guy who was (allegedly) harassed by Maryland cops for a gun that he didn’t have with him.

    FWIW, it’s less about start-ups blossoming there, but established tech firms opening up satellite offices in places where labour and real estate costs are much lower, and there’s a decent supply of smart people around to work there.

      Satellite offices are a pretty big deal, though. Once they become big enough, you do start seeing some startups as people break off from companies and decide not to relocate elsewhere. It’s happened in Salt Lake City and Austin, though of course Silicon Valley and (to a lesser extent) Seattle are still the go-to places for such things.
