This site has looked at cities wanting to become imitations of Silicon Valley in the past.
New York, along with London, has been one of the places most likely to create its own Silicon Valley.
The New York Times though describes how that journey isn’t proving easy, with the city boasting few major tech successes.
The question though is does New York really want to be Silicon Valley – or San Francisco for that matter?
Right now the Bay Area is sexy and the centre of the world’s growth industries; but so too were Detroit and Birmingham, England once upon a time.
Perhaps it’s better to work on being the next big thing rather than trying to imitate today’s successes.
