01/31/2004 - Terabyte Triangle Census, January 2004

The current Terabyte Triangle technology survey discovered 133 technology companies operating in the T. T. --- up from the 103 companies previously discovered. The Terabyte Triangle conducted its last census in August 2002. It was admittedly an imperfect census, but at that time, we could verify over one hundred technology companies within the fuzzy borders of the Terabyte Triangle. For January 2004, another census was commissioned by the Terabyte Triangle Board to determine what had changed, and what had stayed the same. A technology company was defined as any company that added to or contributed to a technology, e.g. Web designers and consultants, software developers, hardware designers and consultants, peripherals designers, security, systems designers and consultants, etc. Biotechnology companies are included in the census. When in doubt, we directly asked a company representative, and if they said, "yes, we are a high-tech company," we took their word for it.

This census was compiled by conferring with property agents and brokers in the Terabyte Triangle, Web searches, telephone conversations, walking tours of buildings, and driving up and down the streets. We found that the building that included high-speed, broadband connectivity as a tenant amenity had the greatest concentration of high tech companies --- companies, making 60% of the total. In addition to the concentration of companies in wired downtown buildings, high tech companies are scattered from East Sprague to West Riverside and North especially along Washington. Like searching for a needle in a haystack, we found many tucked into tiny 'industrial parks' and strip centers. We fear we still didn't find them all, and ask anyone missed, to please let us know.

Another category presented itself. What about companies whose business is not technology, but whose use of technology has greatly altered the way they do business? Are they "high tech" companies? We chose to create a separate category --- new economy companies --- and simply name a handful of examples. Included in this category are all banks, hospitals, and television stations. A number of large law firms have an extensive dark fiber based network connecting their satellite offices. Many accounting firms transfer spreadsheet data over the Internet. The Spokesman-Review has a fiber network connecting Spokane and Coeur d'Alene. A listing of examples of technology consuming, synergistic businesses is included. This is not a comprehensive list.

Also identified were a number of organizations whose mission includes aiding and abetting technology and the technology industry in Spokane.

For help with compiling this census, special thanks goes to Tim Chapman, Interlink Advantage, Nigel Davey, SIRTI, Nancy Janzen, Maplewood Software, Allyson Shoshana, Fernwell Building, Larry Soehren, Kiemle & Hagood, and Spencer Stromberg, Wells & Company.
