This week on the GeekWire Podcast, we talk about what could be an enduring era of remote work — for some people, at least — as enabled by new technology and illuminated by new data about migration within the United States.
- First up, I report on my experience testing the SpaceX Starlink satellite service in my hometown in rural Northern California, including efforts to use the service from multiple locations.
- Then my colleague John Cook assesses a high-profile effort by his home state, Ohio, to attract workers from Seattle and other major U.S. tech hubs.
- And to round things out, we discuss new estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau that show the population of King County, Wash., home to the tech hubs of Seattle and Bellevue, declining 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.
