Posting today from San Fran (from the Apple Store – free internet access rocks) before i jump on the plane back to blighty. I’ve had a very interesting first week in the new job flying out to San Fran on my first day, embarking on a press visit and research project to find out what it is that makes Silicon Valley tick – why is it that all the great innovations on the web are coming out of the valley? Why don’t Silicon Counties (Oxford/Cambridge/London) in the UK turn out the same great successes. I’ll blog further on this when i get back to the UK but i’ve met some great people here in Web 2.0 and Enterprise 2.0 companies, great thinkers and talkers, the energy here is unbelievable. I also attended a great VC orientated event ‘Under the Radar’ some very neat companies operating in the mobile space, mobile in the US might be a little behind that of Europe but they’re catching up.
