Silicon Valley is best known as the area where emerging technologies in programming languages and computing applications meet-up with big money.
The brightest minds in computer technology converged upon the area because Stanford University was among the first institutions to understand the importance of computer programming, and vigorously promoted and nurtured the course of study.
Investors and venture capitalists soon followed, and today, the area is still primed with innovators, high-tech startups, and money. According to Wikipedia, Silicon Valley accounted for 41 percent of all U.S. venture capital investments in 2011.
Enter Reno, Nevada. In 2012, the Biggest Little City in the World snagged two major players in the high-tech computing world: Apple Inc. and NJVC. The companies will build data centers –often called “hubs” in northern Reno. And, if all goes well, there’s plenty of reason to indicate that Reno, Nevada could be the next high-tech Mecca.
