Since hanging out our Real Estate shingle, I’ve had conversations with current and former associates in Tech (Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, LA…)
“Why Bandon?!” is a question, of course.
I’m describing Bandon’s attributes and techies are always concerned with the availability of high-speed internet for homes and businesses. I point out we have fiber access to the internet. To techies this is huge. Here’s a post about the subject:
The SF Bay area is known as the “Silicon Valley.” Not long ago the Eugene/Springfield region adopted calling themselves the “Silicon Shire” which takes after Tolkien’s Hobbit home in the famous Trilogy.
Rohan in the Tolkien Trilogy, is the region of the Horse People. Bandon is sort of a suburb of the Eug-field (or Spring-gene?) “Silicon Shire” corridor. So, I started referring to our high tech future as “Rohandon.” We in “Rohandon” after all, enjoy one of just two State Beach parks that provide horse-friendly facilities on the Oregon Coast.
Contacts in Portland, down to Eugene get it already.
