  7. I would say that Los Angeles is extremely di!erent from Silicon Valley in the mindset of people. SV attracts the top young people in the world who want to do a tech start up. LA is an entertainment meccathat also has a lot of tech start ups because it’s a big city on the west coast of the US. It’s a nice environment to live, but it has a lot of distractions and is very dispersed. I think it’s much harder to do any large scale start up in LA. I also think that LA people do not feel part of a community as much as therefore don’t help each other as much.This is related in part to the distractions and the dispersion e!ect in my opinion. Chris Grey, Founder and CFO of Caplinked Monday, August 12, 13

  10. I was amazed to "nd people in Silicon Valley to be openly sharing ideas, even if another entrepreneur may steal it. It took me several years to really get it. Silicon Valley is full of great ideas, but ideas are cheap... and execution is the hard part.If you think you have a great unique idea, I’d bet 5 other people in Silicon Valley already thought of it.It’s because we share ideas, we ri! o! each other and sometime great companies are born. Rick Marini, Founder of Branchout Monday, August 12, 13

  13. Pay It Forward Monday, August 12, 13
  14. Silicon Valley has given birth to more billion dollar companies than any other ecosystem because of its plentiful risk capital, world class talent, inclusion of the headquarters of many giant public companies, a vibrant support ecosystem, and an open- minded, trust, “pay it forward”, change the world culture. It’s only signi"cant downsides are its high living costs, and hyper- competitive talent market, that forces startups to not just compete against the other best startups, but against perk-laden large companies like Google and Facebook. Monday, August 12, 13
  15. “People in Silicon Valley really believe in “pay it forward”. It’s not all transactional and tit-for-tat. Folks help each other and those not as far along as them. It’s also very accepting of failure; if you have some real catastrophes on your resume, that’s considered a badge of honor - there are not a lot of places on the planet that’s true. It’s also the easiest place in the world to start a company. Everyone is here to help you kick ass.” David Weekly, Founder of PBworks Monday, August 12, 13

  34. Trying to focus on everything is not possible in real life and there are a LOT of groups that tends to call themselves representatives of "all platform". We want to focus just one one platform, WordPress, so its easier to concentrate, gather together those people who are really into it, be it blogging to contributing to core development. Its a Virtuous cycle, you contribute to betterment of WordPress, you contribute to increase the community,the bene"t at the end comes to you. You have more market, you have a better product and if you are a good developer, getting jobs will be much easier. We are simply trying to promote our local developers to start sharing and contributing so they get the ultimate bene"t and also to "get noticed" in the whole world. We have already started doing that but we need more in order to establish Nepal as a "WordPress" destination and contribute to the little technological development we have here.
