It seems like there is work being started by a number of tech investors in Silicone Valley to start a secession movement (most of whom were likely wealthily ostrich-necked when it came to all local and even national movements to know about cascadia or to even consider it). In the long term it seems necessary to have their support if this is going to be a movement that achieves its goal. While silicone valley doesn't technically reside in the Cascades, politically and economically, San Fran would be an enormous anchor, economically, politically, artistically. Northern californians already believe themselves to be fundamentally different than centralians or southerners and the cascadia bioregion does extend to northern california. Thoughts?
