“The reason people don’t want to be in Silicon Valley is because while it’s awesome for the tech community, [and] is so deep in terms of people thinking about technology, that’s all there is, right? …[Y]ou get this variety of experience in New York that’s kind of lacking in Silicon Valley.”
Serkan Piantino, New York engineering head, Facebook
“There has been no other device that has changed social and technological life in such a short time. There has been nothing like it [the iPhone] in the world.”
Clifford Nass, Stanford University sociologist and psychologist
“Despite the terrible weather, Amazon.com had no legitimate excuse for the outage. After all, most other cloud providers in the area were able to continue service.

David Linthicum, CTO and founder, Blue Mountain Labs, and recognized industry expert
