The South is the best place to be in tech and still be for the next century.

Prove me wrong
>>
too many niggers
>>
>>69758719
>The South is the best place to be
Correct
>>
Too many poor white people, and minimal existing infrastructure outside of the few cities that have existing tech industries.
>>
>>69758719
I want this to be true. Why aren't more tech companies moving east?
>less taxes
>lower cost of living so they can pay their employees less
>b-but muh humidity
Arizona and Texas are pretty dry.

>>69758719
West coast from washington to Cali is superior to the south.

So is Boston to Richmond on the east coast.

Once you go south of Richmond, you're making fuck all compared to the rest of the tech industry, and you have to deal with poor rednecks and racist morons.

South = worst area to be for tech.

Imagine not already having 1gbps fiber in 2019. Embarrassing.

I'm just saying, why the fuck would I move to the south unless I grew up there and had no other choice?

Why would I ever WILLINGLY subject myself to that shit hole?

I've driven through much of the south, i'd never want to live there.

Even if they did have a thriving tech industry and good internet infrastructure. I still wouldn't want to live there.
>>
if by south you mean austin, also keep it quiet, too many californians here fleeing their shithole state already
>>
>>69758863
You don't want to deal with degenerate hypercapitalist city shits and corporate cunty women.

You want to buy a house and actually afford nice things and save

You want to work 9-5, even less, and more remote work opportunities

You want to contribute to local politics and *gasp* live a life outside of tech and 4chan. Regardless of your political opinions the south is going to be a battleground in the coming years

Not as developed tech presence nor as possible with spoiled millennials = way more opportunity for entrepreneurship that's not saturated by Jewish VC culture

You realize the more you invest and build, the less of a shithole it becomes right?

Northern Virginia is getting overrun by gays, Koreans, east coast preps who can't afford DC, and SJW whites. Nothing about this place is southern and the food is shit. The women are all basic VTech grads or feminist transplants from the west

Id rather live in Georgia, NC, or non-austin Texas.

Maybe if they put in the work to better themselves I might think differently.

and pays shit in comparison, not to mention having to drive an hour or more for many basic amenities, or just go without.

I enjoy seeing certain movies in the highest quality I possibly can, so I pay the extra and drive an extra 20 minutes to see it at an Imax theater with 4k IMAX laser projection. I bet i'd be driving a lot more than 20 minutes if I lived near you.

There's two IMAX theaters in the next town over actually, and it's just about 30 minutes to reach either one of them.

Also the reason why we have so many homeless is that our weather is not cold/hot enough to kill. There are more homeless in this state that came from other states than there are native homeless. They have to go back.

The cost of living is much lower in the South as well, so it balances out.

>>69759460
and i'd be willing to be they're digital imax (also called liemax because it's a total lie that they're anything close to real imax quality)


There are currently 15 theaters in the entire country that use IMAX dual 4k laser projectors.

Standard digital 2k IMAX does not count.

What the fuck? Dude most tech jobs can be done remotely. You CAN have a tech industry and remote living. You have people working remotely from fucking SE Asia and you think that's not possible from Tennessee of Georgia? The fuck is wrong with you lol
>>
>>69759512
>most tech jobs can be done remotely
Wanna know how I know you aren't in the industry?

Or if you are, you're a low level monkey.


Any sort of decent paying IT job will have some level of management of others involved. While some jobs can be remoted into, most of them can't be, at least not 100% of the time. Eventually you have to make physical appearances.
>>
It will be until all the Yankees fully change our politics and turn the states blue. Once that happens then they gonna tax us to death and fuck up businesses with their shitty Democrat ways. Why the fuck you think tech industry is so big down here? They running away from the business unfriendly actions. AOC and NYC laymakers are about to push out Amazon before they even make a headquarters there and it's likely gonna come to VA or TN now cause they are fucking retarded Yankees.

>>69759537
Yup, it's the biggest lie of the early 2000s. Imax became a household name, and to jump onto the bandwagon, they got 2k digital projectors included in the "imax" brand name, so as long as the theaters met a few other conditions for seating, projector size, and sound system, they could get imax certified without really spending all that much money.

The downside was of course, it simply couldn't compare at the time to real imax, which was 15/70mm projection.

Current Imax dual 4k laser projection still can't quite reach the resolution of 70mm film of the original IMAX standard, BUT the dual 4k laser projection system gets decently close while allowing for MUCH higher dynamic range, contrast ratio, and brightness levels.

This allows super dark scenes with bright highlights (like a night sky with the moon/stars) to actually appear inky black instead of kinda grey like most projection will give you due to the excess light from the projector.


tldr; I like high quality projection

Unironically difficulty in finding talent is the problem here in Michigan. Given the choice between $120k and cali weather or $65k and michigan weather most new grads head out west. Obviously they have more take-home pay here due to lower cost of living and lower taxes, but they are too stupid to figure that out.
>>
>>69759640
Depends what you like.

Seeing Dunkirk on Imax w/ laser projection was astounding, even if the movie itself wasn't anything amazing, the cinematography alone was worthwhile for that.

The same can be said for the two or three most recent star wars films as well, even if they weren't the greatest star wars films, the display of well done editing, projection, etc still makes one of the most good LOOKING movies i've seen in awhile.


BR2049 was also breathtaking when seen on the imax laser projectors.

So what's your issue with DC, MD, or NoVA?
Gov. tech jobs pay a decent amount, and contract work for gov. pays really nicely. NSA, CIA, DoD, DHS, DoS, etc, etc.

Much much more jobs available. Not to mention all the massive data centers in NoVA, many of which require security clearance to work at because they have gov. servers housed there. Which also means it pays like $80k for entry level shit.

Only Alabama because you work on interesting problems. And possibly Virginia (but I wouldn't consider Virginia to be the south)

Would still rather live in SF bay for the $$$.

You can always make a ton of money in the bay, save a bunch and then move to a lower cost of living place to retire or work on more interesting projects.. Cost of living arbitrage. This is why people hate Californians, btw.

DC is a gay ghetto that's gentrified by rich gays. Nova is filled with the most basic white people ever. Southern Maryland is the sleepiest most depressing area I've ever seen. Food is garbage. And the whole area is tiny as fuck. There's 0 culture in the DMV because big brother stamps it out.

Many people

Especially people with children who want their kids to potentially be professional athletes, or have opportunities not offered in other schools.

Around here our high schools have biomed programs, engineering programs, computer programming, networking, A+ cert, etc all in high school.

And that's from public schools, we also have some of the best private schools in the country if you can afford to send your kids there. International exchange programs, foreign language immersion, etc.

There's rednecks everywhere you dumbass. NYC even has some confederate pretenders in it. But really, I live in a "rural" area and most of the trailer park people here are spics.

Also, nice to see that you have some hatred for your own race, Chapofaggot.

False. The height of socialism's popularity in America was during the 1930s. Said socialist policies are what prolonged the great depression. SJW pawns are a vocal minority, and just because you've relentlessly beta orbited them doesn't make them the majority.

No retard, starting pay in Cali is like 140k for a new grad. You save way more money living in Cali making 140k than you would in Michigan making 65k.

Anyone saying a high-paying SV job isn't worth it because of high cost of living is straight up retarded or coping.

If you think you can live on 42,000 in San Jose you are a fucking retard.

SV isn't worth it because it's expensive AND the culture blows. I don't want to be anywhere near the freaks who live there. I net 80k in New England and the 20-30k difference flat isn't worth it.

They pretty much are aside from gasoline. This is assuming your employer/residence offers free parking.

>no electricity/utilities/health insurance
all that shit is negligible enough to go under misc.

Health insurance is, other than rent, the most expensive bill the average American pays every month. It is absolutely not negligible, and you would know that if you weren't a child.

Have you ever paid taxes on a car before? Picked up an Uber or a cab? Compare those prices between San Jose and anywhere in the southeast.

At good companies the most expensive premiums you will pay are <$200 and that's for the most expensive plan with most coverage.

I drive a 10-year-old civic so taxes on car weren't that high.

Have fun driving your ten year old car back and forth from work and your apartment and telling yourself it isn't a quality of life sacrifice.

I don't give a shit about driving a new car lmao. You really think that a new car contributes to your quality of life/happiness?

I think not maintaining a ten year old car is worth a decent amount of stress saved. Again, enjoy your choices bro. You get free parking at work!

Didn't say high stress, I said stress. My car is six years old, it creates stress. Flex as much as you want, cars break down more the older they get and you probably aren't capable of fixing everything on your own. Thankfully I live in a state that doesn't tax me out of the ass so I can keep two.
