Like the rest of the Tech Coast, the Inland Empire aspires to host vibrant high-tech companies. The difference is that tech leaders in Riverside and San Bernardino counties freely admit they have a long way to go. "The challenge for the region is to knock off this fantasy of believing we can attract high-tech companies from outside the region," said Lee Hanson, an associate professor of management at Cal State San Bernardino and a member of the Inland Empire Technology Entrepreneurs.

Like many who ventured east for affordable housing, Jesus Martinez of Moreno Valley paid the price with a horrendous commute. Four to five hours a day he languished in his pickup, traveling 140 miles to and from his machining job in Huntington Park. When the weekends came around, he lay numb inside his spacious, four-bedroom house, too tuckered out to even light up the backyard barbecue.

Las Vegas-bound travelers nearing the Nevada border rarely take notice of the vast, empty stretch of the Mojave Desert surrounding them. But that may soon change. On Wednesday, ground is to be broken for a massive solar thermal plant spanning about 3,600 acres and involving 346,000 mirrors, each about the size of a billboard. Not only will the plant be highly visible to travelers on I-15, it also will be closely watched ? and probably copied ? by solar developers. Many developers are angling to start their solar projects by the end of the year, when a federal program that could cover up to 30% of the construction costs is due to expire.
