Caroline Smith, Dan Primack and Me, Larry Chiang, Share Opinions on Building the Next Silicon Valley

by Larry Chiang on August 6, 2015

By Larry Chiang
Andreessen Horowitz, a16z, has a podcast about developing the next Silicon Valley. 
Caroline Smith (@carolinetanbee)
On creating innovation ecosystems in cities: “[Institutions should] participate in the network rather than try to control it.” @a16z @bfeld
Dan Primack (@danprimack)
Why do so many-government led efforts to build the next “Silicon Valley” in one geography or another fail?…

Rick Turoczy (@turoczy)
“The notion of trying to create the next Silicon Valley is completely the wrong question… for lots of reasons” @bfeld…


Here are some things cities can do:
– They can build or buy a franchise like #SXSW
– they can recruit TED to leave Long Beach CA and have it move to Vancouver. 
– they can host a music festival like AUSTIN City Limits

@a16z, but for your lobby library so I can borrow it for 45 min of Rosewood pool, speed reading!?…
