A journo reflects on Silicon Valley

Thursday, July 7, 2011

imageTom Foremski, aka Silicon Valley Watcher, just came back from a week in London and admits he’s having a difficult time getting back into the swing of things:

The problem is that every time I leave Silicon Valley for a decent length of time, I wake up and realize that there's a whole huge world out there that doesn't care a jot about the things that we care about here, such as:

-Will Google+ succeed?

-Can Android beat iPhone?

- Will Facebook video be able to take on Skype?

- Will Flipboard become the new digital newsstand?

- Is the white iPhone really white? Or is it beige?

Add: Don’t get him wrong. He loves the place. “This is where tremendous things happen. But most of Silicon Valley fails. Take a look around at all the current crop of wonderful new startups, take a look and get their T-shirts because within three to five years, more than 90% won’t be here.”
