What's the consensus webmaster attitude here?

Less space in exchange for city convenience?
More space in exchange for living a bit outside?

West coast, East coast, midwest?

1 great place in new york, or one place in frigid Minnesota and another in Arizona?

Depends on who, really.

For someone starting a business from scratch, perhaps making websites, go where your costs are low, not many people are online yet, and there is little competition, but growth potential.

I wouldn't go to NYC to start an SEO firm from scratch, but perhaps if I was a decent NJ based SEO company looking to grow, it'd be a good move.

North Carolina. There's a pretty solid technology base there, or so I hear, yet the state has been left behind by the housing market bubble.. in other words, very affordable!

You may also want to find a state with no income tax; Florida, for example. Just note that housing prices have shot up in many areas in recent years in FL, although good deals can still be found.

Forget about New Jersey unless you've got money to throw around. It's expensive here. =/ But if you really want to be a Manhattan big shot without spending Manhattan money, look into Jersey City.

I like Seattle, everthing is nice here. Right in the city 2 bedroom apartments are well over
1000.00/month for something nice. But you can live close by in the mountains or on an island
for about 1/2 of that.
