Forbes Magazine says New Orleans is a technology boom town

According to Forbes Magazine, Greater New Orleans is the top spot in the country, outside of California, for high tech jobs.

A Forbes' article, 'The Cities Winning the Battle for Information Jobs,' ranks Greater New Orleans as #3 in the USA, behind only technology heavyweights Silicon Valley and San Francisco.

Boasting a 29% increase in IT employment since 2009, author and researcher Joel Kotkin calls third-place New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner "the most dramatic player" in the battle, saying the information sector in metro New Orleans "is very broad-based, including companies in digital effects, videogames, software development as well as a burgeoning film and television industry. The recent decision by General Electric to place its new technology center and its 300 new technology jobs in New Orleans is another sign of the Crescent City's emergence as a viable information hub."

Michael Hecht, President & CEO of Greater New Orleans, Inc., says it's absolutely remarkable that New Orleans holds that #3 spot in the country.

Does the city not have a design review board. This is a horrible thing to do to Lee Circle.

Is there going to be a groundbreaking soon? My problem with a lot of projects that get slated for the city gets your hopes up for revitalization of a certain area, just to fall flat and nothing is ever done in esscence starting from square one....After Katrina so many people proposed stuff that just left many of us new orleanians dissapointed....they need to tell me about a project when they're rolling in the cranes bulldozers and piledrivers

That building will likely get built quickly. What projects are you talking about?
