I met a few startups and investors yesterday. Nothing was really new.
- Due to the economic downturn and surge of available time, Silicon Valley sees more companies and innovations
- Entrepreneurs are laser-focused on doing what they're supposed to be doing: improving product and engaging more customers. This applies to both well and under-capitalized companies. Many are cautiously hoping for revenue generating opportunities.
- Weather is scattered shower, sunny, and cool. I was wearing a t-shirt, and people kept asking me, "Aren't you cold?" Nope, my skin thickened quite a bit with lipids and adipose tissues.
- Building products is cheaper than ever.
Google's main and only revenue source may be from its wildly successful ads operation. At the end of day, the company's turning all that revenue into enabling many other technology innovations among startups.
Without further due, "Google, you the man!"
