Tech is More Than an Industry
Some people see software and tech as an industry. Seen on it's own it is a whole category of employment including massive companies like Google, Facebook and Microsoft. Yet as time marches on, tech is becoming more than an industry. Like accounting, tech is also a practice that will be incorporated into every business. Coming to terms with this unlocks new exciting opportunities that have the potential to reach much further than big cities. Imagine, if you will, what tech in the wine industry or timber industry will look like. The states (and countries) who understand this first and make the investments in software to support their incumbent industries will be the giants of tomorrow because there is no more direct or efficient way to draw wealth into a location as software.
In short: every company should be thinking of themselves as a tech company.
