Thankful in the Valley

Its another beautiful day in Silicon Valley with blue skies and sunshine and we have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. I was thinking of such things when I read Dean Takahashi's column in the Mercury News. He says it all. The Valley cycle of boom and bust has contributed much to making it what it is. Though, I must say it was not much fun being on the bust side of it :-)

Then again, I would much rather be in Silicon Valley, than in say, Bangladesh, where people are fighting to stay alive. The poor country continually faces severe calamities such as this and struggles to get back on track. The World Bank and the rest of the world are pitching in with their help, but for those going through the ordeal life must be tough indeed. Yes, we in Silicon Valley and the U.S.A. have a lot to be thankful for.
