(GeekWire Photo / Kurt Schlosser)The seemingly unstoppable trend of tech companies and talent concentrating ina few cities hit a brick wall in March. As the first-known U.S. cases of thecoronavirus emerged in Seattle and the San Francisco Bay Area, tech companiespioneered a nationwide shift to remote work.Six months into the pandemic, some of those companies will never go back tothe office in full force.Meanwhile, the cities where tech has driven population spikes and surging homeprices are confronting sudden budget shortfalls and scrambling to adjust.Seattle and San Francisco — home to the largest and most valuable techcompanies in the country — are considering new business and wealth taxes tomake up for the lost revenue.City officials are charging the tech industry with funding recovery efforts,while business advocates sound familiar alarm bells about jobs leaving town.It’s an old story with a new twist: a global experiment in the benefits andshortfalls of remote work. Could the pandemic really decentralize techopportunity away from just a few cities? If so, what does it mean for thefuture of the tech industry in America? City officials and urban experts arewatching the trend closely, but they’re divided over the implications.
