It's not one bright star but many others as well.....
One of the best technology writers and bloggers in San Antonio is L.A. Lorek. I usually like the information that she puts in her blog, but I felt that her comment on how California is discovering San Antonio is shortsighted. Yes, our cost of living is a little lower than Austin, but we at the DCI have to help writers like her to see the big picture. It's not an Austin versus San Antonio issue, but one that helps the entire region prosper. We in this part of Texas need to see the benefits of colloboration. I liken it to a galaxy of stars. Right now, Austin is a bright star, while San Antonio is a developing one. But if we can help businesses see the beauty of working in San Antonio, Seguin, San Marcos, Waco and others, it will help us the truly innovative see the galaxy of technology stars in our region.

The Digital Convergence Initiative of the Texas Technology Corridor –

An opportunity to be a leader in establishing Central Texas as the world center of innovation for Digital Convergence.

As more intelligent, smaller digital machines are developed, as digital circuits evolve, and as digital communications becomes ever-more pervasive, they will continue to converge with computers, televisions, security systems, electric appliances, and many other devices, to provide new and useful functions for both the home and work environments.

This is Digital Convergence, and is the tip of the iceberg - the symbiotic coalescence of technologies, markets, and functions forming the foundation for present and future innovation and growth.
