Came across the Hudson Valley Real Estate Network which bills itself as Web 2.0 for the region’s real estate market. Based in LaGrangeville in Dutchess County. Appears to be brand spanking new, so not much up there right now in terms of listings.
I’m not sure if web design shop Furio‘s Web2.0 Innovation Map is anywhere close to being comprehensive, but what’s up there now doesn’t look great for the Hudson Valley. Just two Web2.0 sites north of New York City, and none in Albany. Is this a big deal? Not when you consider all the good news of late about growth in chip manufacturing and nanotech research in the Albany and Fishkill areas. But as AnnaLee Saxenian writes in her book Regional Advantage, developing a truly sound tech economy requires a diversity of businesses. We’ve got the hardware, chips and such in spades. But do we have enough of the soft stuff – Web services, software development, etc.?
