‘Silicon Prairie’

An article published on extolls the virtues of the Gallatin Valley as a home for tech start-ups.

Writer Christina DesMarais interviews the head of Bozeman-based Schedulicity and also manages to mention RightNow and TechRanch, hitting all the bases while also managing to sneak in how small-town-ish Bozeman is and how friendly and nice all the locals are compared to big-city Silicon Valley, Calif.

Maybe I’m too inured in the Montana way of life, having grown up here, but I don’t think of us as all that provincial or rural. But that’s probably a skewed point of view, as I haven’t spend a heck of a lot of time in bigger towns and cities.

Anyhow, it’s nice to see the local tech industry getting some national attention.
