Boulder - #2 for Tech Jobs

by Osman Parvez
----

Right on cue, here's Business Week with Technology: It's Where the Jobs Are:

The highest concentration of technology workers—286 for every 1,000 workers—was in, no surprise, Silicon Valley. Boulder, Colo., came in second, with 230, and Huntsville, Ala.; Durham, N.C.; and Washington rounded out the top five in density.


Of course, as everyone knows from our regional experience with telecom, having a concentration can also cause trouble if the sector experiences a sharp downturn. The good news is that we appear to be moving towards greater diversification. We may soon become the country's leader in alternative energy, for example. In addition to being home to a number of alternative energy related start up companies, we have oil giant Conoco Phillips planning to create a large number of alternative energy related jobs here.
