  9. 9. In Silicon Valley …everything that is analog is being digitized, everything that is being digitized is now being stored, everything that is being stored is now being analyzed on powerful computer systems, and all the learning is being immediately applied to make old things work better to make new things possible and to do old things in new ways.
