The parties must have gone on late into the night in Silicon Valley as the thousands who had vested their shares enjoyed their first day of well deserved new wealth. How many will go on to start their own businesses?
Much quieter in the Scilly Isles twenty miles south west of Lands End, UK, and on one of the five inhabited islands, Bryher, all was quiet. No passing of wealth down the generations as all the property is owned on leases from the Duchy of Cornwall. However there is the opportunity to pass life-style business opportunities down the family. We have Zoe running the shop (#bryhershop) and Issy running a new Eco Bed and Breakfast (#samson_hill) and Dan running the boatyard (#bennettboatyard). There is also Richard Pearce, famous for painting the blue sea and white beaches with a lone boat on the sands.
No technology clusters here but a very strong community with rules, written and unwritten, for harmony among all. I guess it is almost Utopian!
So come all you Facebook Vesters, the optical cable will be here “next year” promising great broadband, and the chance for a new life connected to the real world!
