Reality check: google stories only happen in the Valley
October 23, 2006
New York Times runs a nice article today on why things like Google, YouTube, Yahoo, Netscape and so forth only happen in the Valley. It´s the unique mix of great science & technology + entrepreunership + (venture) money packed in a very small area that counts.
Lesson to be learned: Dont´t be a fool trying to copy them, find your own model to start a high-tech company. Behold of your economics and geographical constraints.
