This story highlights another way to turn Englewood around. To make Englewood friendlier to technology. Perhaps that long struggling neighborhood can be another branch of "Sillicone Valley". So Englewood could be a place of great commercial activity again with retail and perhaps some entertainment and then some technology to boot. And it will also be near Kennedy-King College.
Think about this if the Whole Foods will provide jobs to students at Kennedy-King at least, this tech center could also provide jobs to this tech hub.
And let's not forget Congressman Bobby Rush attempted to bring a tech hub to Englewood and that failed effort was the result of a Sun-Times probe!
