the recovery of silicon valley

News.com has an interesting article (from yesterday I think), Will Silicon Valley get its mojo back?, that is interesting. Having been a valley resident myself, I think that the Bay Area has everything it needs to "get its mojo back". It should only let go of a few things. First and foremost is the expectation of money. Sillicon Valley worked well for so long because people believed in what they were doing, not because they wanted to get rich (although that was a nice side effect :-)). Now it's all about who has the bigger house and the best car. Sort of sickening at times. So, IMO, when that phase of the "hangover" from the bubble passes, the Valley should be well on its way to spawning The Next Big Thing.

... and so it begins

from the not-really-a-surprise dept: Microsoft due to release security fix for Phone OS. One would think that after screwing up so badly in security for desktop OSes Microsoft would have learned its lesson right? I guess that this proves that the flaw is inherent in the architecture imposed by Win32/COM and now .Net. Good thing most new phones run Symbian.
