Re: Meanwhile they don't employ anyone
Which is why the local ecodev is going after small biz development rather than trying to entice large biz to move with massive incentives/corp welfare. KC metro already has about 3000 IT/tech shops, nearly all home grown. It's already considered high ranking in entrepreneurial development.
On a related tangent, there is rumor in KC real estate circles that Google is looking to buy the massive Sprint HQ campus in the KC area (Sprint is using only half). If true, perhaps Google is looking to base the fiber division in KC area. KC is already a top 10 telcom town and hit a list for a lot of Android developers, so is plausible.
