Is Seattle the Next Silicon Valley?

Seattle Silicon Valley

If there’s one thing in common between Silicon Valley (San Francisco) and Silicon Alley (New York City), it’s cost. These cities are known for having some of the highest costs of living in the world, let alone America. When it comes to tech innovations, centralization is important to keep the various growing companies together, but it’s still relatively-exclusive.

Some place needs to step up and become the less-expensive alternative. Is that place Seattle?

The infographic by Seattle Nissan explores this concept. Click to enlarge.

  1. “Some place needs to step up and become the less-expensive alternative. Is that place Seattle”? -Gotta say, I enjoyed this piece, the info-graphics are great but are you suggesting that Seattle is an inexpensive alternative to Silicon Valley? Less expensive? -Sure. Inexpensive? -nope.

    The alternative’s are popping up all over the country and indeed, the world. I know people will scoff at this suggestion, but have a look at Detroit: http://hubski.com/pub?id=18610 There are some really smart, dedicated and wealthy people that are intent on putting Detroit on the tech map. I for one, hope they succeed. -Talk about inexpensive!!

  2. Its same every where. Here in Australia cost of living is rising, People are beginning to avoid the city.

  3. Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.

    Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Many thanks, I appreciate it!
