I agree with you that no one really dreams of moving to Sacramento for any reason, but a lot of people end up there. As a UC Davis graduate working for a software company in the Sacramento area (El Dorado Hills technically, about 40 minutes east of Sac), I'd have to say it does seem like a little version of Silicon Valley in some ways. Not Sacramento itself, to be more specific Folsom and El Dorado Hills, because there's a huge Intel campus in Folsom, and lots of little tech and software companies strewn around the whole area. I wish there were more software companies in Sacramento proper though, because when I moved from Sac to Folsom to reduce my commute stresses my cost of living doubled. Stupid sub-burbs.
