The Trouble with Tech Economic Clusters

My friend Rohit Shukla of Los Angeles-based Larta has an entertainingly multisyllabic attack on Silicon Valley envy:

….by its very nature innovation is a dynamic and sometimes frustratingly unpredictable set of constructs along a long and winding road. Silicon Valley was, and is, a highly movable feast, a phenomenon that was caused by the incidental and accidental rubbing of shoulders of early entrepreneurs, who made fateful decisions to stay in the then-pastoral setting of the Valley instead of moving east.
