Has Silicon Valley Lost Its Soul?

from the does-anyone-really-care? dept

It seems that every few months some news organization has to fill a feature article with a story about the “mood” in Silicon Valley, and the popular topic these days is wondering if Silicon Valley has lost its soul. I think it’s a pointless question. There’s no doubt that things are tougher here for many people. However, there are still plenty of entrepreneurs going at it. While the article points out that being an entrepreneur is no longer a huge status symbol, real entrepreneurs don’t do it for “status”. They do it because it’s something they love to do. The khaki-clad folks who swooped in to be “famous” entrepreneurs (and who planned to cash out in 18 months or less) were never really entrepreneurs. If they’re leaving town with their heads down, good riddance.
