Preventing Austin from Becoming Silicon Valley 2

from the good-luck dept

It seems some entrepreneurs in Austin, Texas are trying to prevent it from becoming a second Silicon Valley as they hate the thought of super high housing prices, and traffic nightmares. I think it’s sensible to try to plan ahead (and I think they have more space to work with, which is helpful), but to some extent there’s a reason why the negatives of Silicon Valley happened. While, housing prices are ridiculous, I think the people who spend all their time complaining about Silicon Valley need to calm down.
