You do realize that Alabama, Huntsville in particular, is known as the Silicon Valley of the east?

Keep telling yourself that.

Trying to sell yourself as that to attract talent doesn't make you that.  It's marketing BS.


You should come visit.  Its not marketing.  Its outsiders seeing whats happening:

Engineers per 1,000 employees: 60.771

I thought the same thing until I visited a couple of years ago.   I was thinking to myself..."we're going to Alabama???".   I was surprised (shocked) at how tech-heavy the Huntsville area was.

Clearly people are clamoring to live in Alabama.

Oh, wait...

I guess 40th is good.  Looks like a Crimson ripple to me, but everything is relative (yeah, there's an Alabama joke there but I'm not going for it).

It's a three hour commute from Huntsville to Montgomery. How do you handle that?

LOLOLOL   Population isn't growing much. You sidetrack.  We like it that way.  Sure as heck don't want to be another CA or NY.

Its unbelievable whats happening. But its not mainstream knowledge. The big players in high tech industries are VERY aware, and thats all that matters. Its all good. :)
