Austin, Round Rock, Texas

The capital of the great land of Texas.
Throughout its history, Austin has doubled in population every 20 years. The past two decades were
no exception. With 657,000 people living within the city limits, Austin now ranks as the country's
16th largest city. The total metropolitan area includes 1.2 million.
Much of the city's most recent growth is a result of a technology boom. In 1967, Tracor Industries
set up shop in far northwest Austin. Others soon followed-IBM, Texas Instruments, 3M, Motorola, Advanced Micro Devices, Samsung, Dell. From buffalo chips to computer chips, the little trading post by the river has emerged as the focal point of the Silicon Hills.
Michael Dell opened shop from his dorm room at the University at Austin, and now Dell's headquarters are in Round Rock, a suburb of Austin.
