In some ways, particularly in Silicon Valley, much depends on how one defines manufacturing. For example, a recent study on technology jobs found that apps for smartphones, tablets and social media have created an estimated 466,000 jobs in the U.S. since 2007, the year the iPhone was introduced. Whether apps qualify as "making stuff" is debatable, but something is being produced and innovation is advancing. The apps study is here: http://www.technet.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/TechNet-App-Economy-Jobs-Study.pdf

Really? Where does your 13% number come from? And are you talking about manufacturing employment down -- in Silicon Valley or in the entire U.S.? I would like to know more.

A lot of sugarcoating manufacturing employment down 13%.

Reading positive report like this after so long. I am hope as the report says 2012 will be very good year for semiconductor industry and I really hope this will help reduce the unemployment figures.

This is one of the most comprehensive stories on the snapshot of Silicon Valley today. It's data-driven, well backed up by figures and statistics... it sure makes us all want to believe that we are witnessing "the Second Half has begun," just as the author told me.
