High-tech ghost town remains unbuilt

Remember that ghost town that was to built in the New Mexico desert? The one that was to be a test bed for all sorts of wiz bang technologies that could revolutionize real, populated cities? Turns out the developer has put off construction “due to some very complicated and unforeseen issues with acquiring the land.” Mmm hmm. And it has nothing to do with the fact that the price tag ballooned from the $200 million it was to cost when I first wrote about it?
