  In recent years, tech has been a major source of job growth for the U.S. economy. One study shows more than 500,000 “App Economy” jobs created since 2007. From Austin to Detroit to Louisiana to New York, state and local governments are starting to focus on attracting tech firms and startups. Will the tech jobs boom continue? Does faster and more disruptive innovation lead to more jobs created or more jobs destroyed? Will tech hiring stay concentrated in traditional locations such as Silicon Valley or will it spread across the country?
