Intel and Oregon

Chidanand Rajghatta of the ToI group reports about Intel's investments in Oregon. He says
[quote]
"According to one estimate, Intel has ploughed in $11 billion over the past two decades, and has now announced that it will step it up to $25 billion over the next 15 years. A company that was powered by a Hungarian immigrant (Andy Grove) and is headquartered in Santa Clara, California, is now counted as Oregon’s own.Meanwhile, back home, Karnataka’s corrosive politicians turn their backs on Bangalore’s own. "

How sad. Read it to see how politicians in other countries actually work to improving the lives of their constituents, as opposed to those in India.

I love Oregon - I lived in Portland/Beaverton for a long time. I am personally very happy for Oregon. Portland also hosts OSDL where Linus Torvalds works.

Three cheers for Oregon

I hope the Indian politicions realize the value of a well paid working force in their constituency
