    The signs as written here have been on the wall. I would add the explosion of viable technologies that are converging in radically new ways from the ingredients of computing power, computing visualization, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, robotics, etc, etc are also happening all over the country and across the world. The world of tech is not only evolving in Silicon Valley and that provides a true justification for branching out. The tech eco system is changing so fast, we should all expect lots of movement in the near future.

  • “People want to be in places where they’re the hero,” Maybe this is very true.

  • The grass is always greener —I’m sure the Midwest is extremely appealing for all right reasons, but living, working and sending your kids to school in certain cities might bring a large dose of reality that can’t be experienced through whistle stop tours where friendly chatter occurs over vegan polenta.

  • Silicon Valley is on a listening tour

  • #1 analyst here once again. Twilio, Apigee, google, Yahoo, every VC firm funded company I have intimate knowledge of.

    I knew Silicon Valley was doomed when I came here from Texas. Why would anyone build a company in an under-developed, overly taxed, regulated state with no responsible business/innovation

    Its a pain to get anywhere, the food is overpriced and subscribed, even the cell signal in Palo Alto is 3G.

    Silicon Valley is done.

    www.startupbus.com Innovation is now free to move about the country.

    Its really simple, support the innovation or it will go elsewhere.

  • In the long run, not even whether Silicon Valley or Midwest, I am a bit concerned that opportunities shift away from US to... places like India, if I read the article like this and stories about spoiled engineers. Though I still think that there are strong advantages in leaderships, creatives, and diversities in US.

  • “This isn’t a full-blown exodus yet. But in the last three months of 2017, San Francisco lost more residents to outward migration than any other city in the country, according to data from Redfin, the real estate website.” SF has great innovation in tech, but infrastructure and real estate zoning? Not so much.

  • Kevin Roose's ridealong with a few VCs I know well (hi, Robin!) is a great read. I'm glad that Vance tagged along because the Rise of the Rest program and fund that he and Steve Case are doing is working.

    SV just needs to actually take the initiative and spend more time. There was another Wired story

    SV just needs to actually take the initiative and spend more time. There was another Wired story about this similar subject and Jeremy Liew of Lightspeed Venture Partners had one of the most tone deaf responses in that he would never take the effort to visit.

    And some VCs don't understand why they get accused of having the easiest job in the world. 🤔

  • It seems sea-changing....

    “This isn’t a full-blown exodus yet. But in the last three months of 2017, San Francisco lost more residents to outward migration than any other city in the country, according to data from Redfin, the real estate website. A recent survey by Edelman, the public relations firm, found that 49 percent of Bay Area residents, and 58 percent of Bay Area millennials, were considering moving away. And a sharp increase in people moving out of the Bay Area has led to a shortage of moving vans. (According to local news reports, renting a U-Haul for a one-way trip from San Jose to Las Vegas now costs roughly $2,000, compared with just $100 for a truck going the other direction.)”

  • Diversity and reconnecting seem to be quite the buzz both sides of the Atlantic.
