Renaissance & Silicon Valley
What’s the common denominator between Silicon Valley and the “Renaissance”? Give it a few thoughts!! What was the Renaissance back in the time? How has that period back then marked the world? Let’s drop a couple of names you might have heard of:
- Michelangelo: sculptor, painter and architect
- Leonardo Da Vinci: painter, scientist, inventor, and polymath
- Machiavelli: writer, historian, diplomat and humanist
- Galileo: Creating one of the first modern telescopes and revolutionized our understanding of the world supporting the work of Copernicus
- William Shakespeare: English poet and playwright
Right, Renaissance was what Silicon Valley is today for innovation, culture, products and inventors! The world was pointing to a single spot on earth where the greatest inventors, writers, doctors, etc. were experimenting, failing and changing the world!
Today Silicon Valley is attracting the strongest dreamers to change the world out of Tech-Mekka. Silicon Valley thou is NOT a geographical region! Silicon Valley is an environment!As such — it doesn’t matter if you were born along El Camino Real, nor in New Jersey or elsewhere. We are ALL immigrants to the environment first, as long as we don’t become an asset to it.
You can either a) just keep on observing the crazy cool stuff that’s happening here in Silicon Valley, or b) you jump into the SV pool and start being part of it.
