Visit to Silicon Valley


Recently I had the privilege of visiting several companies in the heart of Silicon Valley. I returned from my trip convinced that the United States is not finished, despite what so many commentators say.

In that vibrant land of virtual environments and mobile apps, we can observe yet another transformation of US society. Like earlier dynamic periods in history, this one has been brought about by intellectual innovation and free-market experimentation. Just drive down Highway 101 from San Francisco, alongside the young technology workers on commuter buses, and see the expansive corporate campuses lined up one after another.
