Coeur d'Alene has always been an outdoors hotbed. Can it also be the Silicon Valley of the Inland Northwest?

In some ways, Coeur d'Alene is like other Northwest locales transitioning from an economy focused on utilizing natural resources to recreational enjoyment of them. Spokane's recent slogan was "Near Nature, Near Perfect," Sandpoint advertises "It Just Comes Naturally," and Coeur d'Alene bills itself as "Your Lakeside Playground." Of course, recreation isn't the only focus; all three areas are exploring emerging industries, especially technology, as a focus of their economic futures.
