    So, what conclusion did you come up with for Las Vegas? We definitely need more smart tech people like yourself in Las Vegas.

    Ultimately, I said no. The housing costs are excellent, but there are two problems with Vegas. One, is crime. Rampant crime levels due to the economy, and criminals unable to afford living in Los Angeles.

    That issue is actually something that will probably fix itself when the economy returns. The other issue is lack of an ability to build teams. That’s harder to deal with.

    I think the best chance for Vegas to build a tech economy, is to encourage big corporations to relocate, and legalize moonlighting explicitly. Then Silicon Valley startup folks (like me) can woo over people working day jobs (at major tech companies) to also have a night shift at a tech startup.
