1. My, that was a heart-breaking rant! Poor babies, their Chinese and Indian engineers are going home
because of H1B visa restrictions and taxes on stock options!

2. Silicon Valley innovation is dead because that cycle is over
Digital technology and digital media are now where railroads were after the switch from steam to diesel.

Its all over.

With mature technologies it is all about consolidation, efficiency, and grinding down your competitors.

4. "Innovation is in trouble because of restrictions on H1B visas"
Translation: "I can't hire enough asian engineers to work for $30k/year so that I can keep my outrageous salary"
