Silicon Valley, welcome to Database Valley

Uploaded: Mar 22, 2018
I was formulating a blog post about Menlo Park as company town when the NYTimes beat me to it (sort of).

But in the meantime, this insight: - Today, ‘Silicon Valley’ is an anachronistic misnomer. Today our region is more properly ‘Database Valley’- A transition that really started in the early ‘80s with the DB platform companies like Oracle, DB application companies like PeopleSoft, and Search Engines in the early 90's exploiting the Internet.

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
