The real work of Silicon Valley occurs in the mind

Books 2 Byte
The Nudist on the Late Shift
Po Bronson


For a stroll down the Silicon Valley, go with The Nudist on the Late Shift by Po Bronson ( http://www.crosswordbookstores.com/). “Every generation that came before us had to make a choi ce in life between pursuing a steady career and pursuing wild adventures. In Silicon Valley, that trade-off has been recircuited.” Young people have no longer to choose, says Bronson. “It’s a two-for-one deal: the career path has become an adventure into the unknown. More happens here and so quickly, satisfying anybody’s craving for newness. In six months you might get a job, be laid off, start a company, sell it, become a consultant, and then, who knows?”
