Joel Kotkin, a senior fellow at the Pepperdine Institute for Publc Policy, suggests in an LA Times Op-Ed that the growth of the technopolis is favoring areas with webs of technology "subregions" and cheap transportation. Kotkin suggests that LA and Orange County together are a larger technopolis than Silicon Valley. Drawing on a recent Milken Institute report, Kotkin also introduces the words technopoles and "nerdistans, hotbeds of telecommunications and biomedical technology." Joel Kotkin is also author of "The New Geography: How the Digital Revolution is Reshaping the American Landscape"
