Silicon Valley is grown, not built. By Paul Graham

Shorter Silicon Valley.
Need nerds (smart creative fanoys, not computer operators)
and rich people (investors and mentors within an hour's drive),
nice place to live (San Fanciscso, Boston, Seattle, Buffalo, Pittsburgh)
Need free thinking ofbeat (Portland, Boulder, New York,
Los Angeles, Las Vegas
) not stodgy (Saint Louis, Detroit) bureaucrats.

Silicon Valley is grown, not built (comments).

-- Paul Graham

The defining quality of Silicon Valley is not that
Intel or Apple or Google have offices there, but that
they were started there.
