Happy 2014 Silicon Valley and the Bay Area! No Scarlet Plague has stricken the Bay Area in 2013 and no dot com crash has hit as of yet. But some of the signs of a bubbly dot com bubble are appearing. From a frothy, unsustainable real estate market that has pushed rent costs higher and higher, to increased traffic of Tesla Model S 4 door sedans piloted by GoogleGlassHole drivers running up and down the 101. It’s here. The Tech Bubble. When will it pop? No one knows. Yet. Though some of the high flyers of the Tech World in this bubble are different from the Pets.com era of the past. Some of these booming tech companies in SiliconCali are actually profitable and are minting money as I type.
The long awaited Northside Library in Santa Clara has been built, wired, landscaped and lit up with energy efficient LED lighting. But it may never open.
Due to incomprehensible local California politics, the Northside library opening has been cancelled.
A web site to save our Northside Library has been set up as a rallying point to channel disappointment in local leadership.
