employers: Janet Miller,
SrVP-Economic Development for the Nashville Area Chamber
of Commerce and director of Partnership
2010, says Nashville is pursuing
six "pure technology" companies at this writing,
including firms associated with IT, Telecom, consumer
technologies, healthcare technologies. Fourteen
additional non-technology firms have substantial
technology employment. A total 33 firms have
expeditionary teams exploring Nashville, right now, and
a total 97 prospect visits to Nashville have been
shepherded around town during the first three quarters
of FY05, reflecting a pace faster than in FY04. Miller's
crew is tracking more than 1,100 targeted prospects. In
the past 12 months, the largest tech -intensive
relocation was Bank of New York's data center,
representing 150 Tech jobs and a $150 million
investment. If you know Tech firms that should relocate
to Nashville, please write Mary Grace Schulz. If
you're with a local Tech firm that's a member of the
Nashville Area Chamber, peruse the Chamber's many

Study Criticizes Cybersecurity Research
The President's Information Technology Advisory
Committee, after studying the U.S. technology
infrastructure for nearly a year, found an imbalance in
the current cyber-security research and development
(R&D) portfolio. In a February report, "Cyber
Security: A Crisis of Prioritization," the committee
noted that most support is given to short-term,
defense-oriented research, but that little is given to
research that would address larger security
vulnerabilities. The committee recommended increased
funding for research in civilian security, intensified
federal efforts to recruit and retain cyber-security
researchers, and more support for the rapid transfer of
federally developed cutting-edge cyber-security
technologies to the private sector. View report.
