Midwest Tech
Full disclosure: I went to college in the Chicago area, so I have a fondness for it. We've profiled other companies in the Midwest facing talent challenges; Chicago isn't alone. I like the "make everyone a recruiter" advice mentioned here. The often un-mentioned super power these companies have is that many people (shhhh) like living in the Midwest...even before you throw in Chicago pizza. Many midwestern CIOs have learned to tell that story to possible recruits.

Cost of living
One would think the cost of living in Silicon Valley would offset much of the salary boost. What you can buy in Chicago for $400K would cost a million in SV. However, I notice no one mentioned the brutal winters!

How long until tech companies buy and renovate downtown loft buildings a la the "artist community" model and offer to house programmers?
