Deep into a podcast with Venture Voice, Tripod founder Bo Peabody (now a VC in Boise) touts his city as an unexpected spot for startups:

Frankly, I think one of the best cities right now for starting a company is Boise, Idaho. There's a big population there, there's five or six Fortune 500 companies there, lots of tech workers. There's capital now with the fund that we have. It's a beautiful place to live and therefore easy to attract other people. The cost of doing business is very low.

We're sure picking Idaho over Silicon Valley is smart — as long as you're very, very lucky.
