Erik Bruvold, president of the National University System Institute for Policy Research, said he thinks that might not be the full story.

“Scott, I think that needs to be tempered a bit. My community (4S) is heavily populated with technology workers. I have little doubt that San Diego has a harder time competing for “millennial” techs who want urban environment – but I also question whether that “is” our technology/innovative economy. San Diego may well have found its “niche” by offering high quality suburban offering to a class of tech workers that want that (married, with kids, often from abroad). But Kelly’s reporting can shed light on this – interview recruiters from a host of firms (probably off the record/Background) to see how much of a problem.”
