New book says Silicon Valley's rise fueled by: 1. massive govt spending on science 2. prohibition of noncompete clauses 3. more open immigration policies in '60s 4. resistance to monopoly All of those factors are under threat or in reversal today.
Great review of new book by of written by of How the Department of Defense Bankrolled Silicon Valley
"Defense money, [] observes, “remained the big-government engine hidden under the hood of the Valley’s shiny new entrepreneurial sports car, flying largely under the radar screen of the saturation media coverage of hackers and capitalists.”"
