The New Media today announced the launch of the new thenew-media.info website, dedicated to providing information on Technology Centers and Tech Clusters across the globe.
With Technology Centers featured from across the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia Pacific, the New Media website offers a range of information and statistics including the biggest Technology companies headquartered at each, the number of employees along with the focus of each Tech Center.
“The new website offers a unique and useful look at the technology sector worldwide by highlighting the way many of the top tech companies tend to cluster together geographically,” a spokesperson for The New Media said today. “We have compiled information and details about tech clusters across four continents, which includes both the expected areas of the United States, United Kingdom and Japan, but also less well-known technology hubs in places like Australia, Singapore and Ireland. We were also pleased to be able to include coverage of some of the less well known technology clusters in the United States.”
The New Media website covers such up-and-coming rivals to the world famous ‘Silicon Valley‘ as Silicon Prairie, a term used to define an area of the southern and central United States where technology industries are flourishing. This includes the Dallas metro area, which has seen years of consistent growth in the field of high-tech business. With many new companies starting there every year, this thriving hub of technological research and development is a prime location for established or new technology companies.
Another section of the site looks at the high-technology industry in Oregon, where the industry’s development started in response to the need for an effective and efficient management system that would assist in protecting the state’s vast, natural resources. In the 1930s, the Portland branch of the U.S. Forest Service Radio Lab hired two innovators, Douglas Strain and Howard Vollum, to engineer an effective communication system that connected the fire lookouts dotted across Oregon’s heavily forested landscape. Technology now accounts for approximately 20 percent of Oregon’s economy. The designation, Silicon Forest, often refers to the many technology-rich, commercial enclaves throughout the state, such as Bend, Corvallis, and White City, which host large clusters of economic activity with emphasis in computer components, software development and networking. Still, when referenced in trade publications and other sector-specific media, the nickname is most often associated with the western Portland Metropolitan area.
“All in all, we cover 22 technology clusters in the United States, and dozens more across four continents. We believe our new site’s goal of including the often overlooked areas was successfully achieved, and trust that our visitors will find this useful.”
