Moving Out of the Valley

from the going-away dept

A story covering the small (but noticeable) trend of companies moving out of Silicon Valley. They claim they’re doing so to take advantage of lower costs as they push towards profitability. A side benefit, they say, is that workers are more loyal and less tempted to jump ship. That’s definitely true, but there is something to be said for staying in the Valley. Despite the benefits of this interenet thing as a communications medium, you’d be surprised at how much business gets done through personal networking at a party or over a beer at a bar – and the fact still is you’re more likely to run into someone you can do business with in Silicon Valley, than in Sacramento.
