We agree with Richard that silicon valley will move out of US. When we were in IIT a decade back almost the entire class used to migrate to Silicon valley. I no longer see those trends. Infact we see lot of students who complete graduation in American university coming back to India for jobs. Bangalore has a good potential but the companies here should be more product design based; currently majority are in service oriented bussiness. VLSI Training, http://www.iivdt.com

The Valley has outlived it's usefulness. The result of the exodus is a far less homogeneous workforce and much greater innovation. Intellectual incest ruled the Valley in the 70's and 80's as everything was shared by the transient employees. Similar products came in waves. There were no surprises. The breadth and diversity of todays products is a direct result of the loss of that "group think" culture. As an engineer and a consumer I love what I see in the marketplace. I also love living three minutes of my boardroom and six minutes from the ski slopes.

Craig Barrett should be more careful about his comments. He was one of the driving forces for getting Intel's silicon operations out of silicon valley. If I had volunteered to go to China I would still be employed by Intel. I did not, and am now unemployed. The hard part about finding another job is that EVERY major silicon company has abandoned silicon valley for silicon R&D and/or manufacturing.
