I recently published a paper with the Brookings Institution's Metropolitan Policy Program. The paper shows how three metropolitan areas--Portland (OR), Kansas City, and Boise--became centers of high technology industry without the presence of a major university. The evidence on high-tech development in the three metropolitan areas offers important information for policymakers and practitioners interested in technology-based economic development outside of large, well-established high tech centers.
