Welcome to Silicon Prairie.

AutoAlert, a California-based leader in software solutions for auto dealers, has been offered a state Missouri Works grant of as much as $9.2 million for moving its headquarters to downtown Kansas City.

The company, which is headquartered in Irvine, Calif., is expected to create more than 300 high-paying tech jobs at the new location.


Awesome news for DTKC.

Wow... Good for KC. I wonder what CA people will think of their new home? Colder winters will be something new, but nowadays, the Midwest winters seem warmer.

I was just down in KC over the weekend. Love KC.

By the way, a major company down there, Cerner, is building an amazing new campus (within view of I-435) where the Bannister Mall used to be (it was all removed). Anyways, they have two buildings built so far. They are amazing. They have kinda waves in them, with a chaotic order of long, vertical panes of glass down the sides of them. I'm very, VERY impressed with the exciting design. Here's the two completed buildings: http://media2.kshb.com/photo/2017/02/06 ... 40_480.jpg (In person, from I-435, they look even more striking.)
"Crossroads Village" down the street from "Aksarben Village?" Does "Crossroads" have any meaning to people 20 and under? "Dodge At 72nd" is a type name I like better, drawing from the excitement of the iconic, special Omaha intersection. My $.02.
