US migration patterns from 2020 to 2021 (Image from the US Census Bureau, adapted by GeekWire.)
This week on the GeekWire Podcast, we talk about what an enduring era of remote work could be — for some people at least — if enabled by new technology and illuminated by new data on migration within the United States.
First, I report on my experience testing the SpaceX Starlink satellite service in my hometown in rural Northern California, including attempts to use the service from multiple locations. Next, my colleague John Cook assesses a high-profile effort by his home state, Ohio, to attract workers from Seattle and other major US tech hubs. King County, Wash., home to the tech hubs of Seattle and Bellevue, fell by more than 20,000 people last year as other counties in the state saw an influx.
Finally, we give a sneak preview of the five finalists in one of the categories for the upcoming GeekWire Awards.
