Abstract

Several attempts have been made to developing Oregon and the Silicon Forest into an IT technology hub but these have not achieved the intended impact. Looking for a wider perspective than Oregon and high-tech relationship only, adding the impact of this relationship in other areas like housing market, political decisions, unemployment, or transportation and beyond, looking for the potential links between these external factors reveals the reasons that have prevented Oregon to become a Tier-1 technological hub.
Analysis of past events and developments allow gathering information that provides a better understanding of the present situation, and furthermore, to predict the closer future. Or being less aggressive, try to understand why Oregon and Silicon Forest is not fostering as an IT technological hub and it seems that has reached its maximum capacity already.
