Silicon Rising

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

 

Avaya_SiliconCatalyst_smallaerSeveral months ago, I was talking to several partners of an Asian incubator.   They were focusing on “new technology,” various apps, other IoT-related areas, “not old ones, like semiconductors.”  Ugh!

I felt like I was part of the US steel industry and living in the rust belt.  ;-)

KNTV, the Bay Area NBC affiliate, covered a story this past Friday on how Silicon Valley is the nation’s mecca for startups.  KNTV reporter Scott Budman contends that Silicon Valley is stretching its borders north to Oakland.  Really?
