In Casino Town, Rolling the Dice on High-Tech, by Dionne Searcey

Reno, Nev–“A street newly nicknamed Startup Row intersects this city’s old strip of casinos touting Money Maker Jackpots and Crazy Cash slot Tournaments…

While old-fashioned slot machines are whirring nearby, this stretch of road has become a home for smartphone app makers, cloud computing developers and ¬†companies like one that set up shop here to recently build tiny sensors that allow devices to connect to the internet…Instead of poker payouts, Reno now boasts of e-commerce ventures, an Apple data center and a testing ground for drones. ¬†It also hopes to attract a large factory to build batteries for Tesla’s electric vehicles.”
