Added on by Chris Saad.
Being from Australia, we often discuss internally the advantages and disadvantages of being in the Valley.

Having just come back from there, I can tell you it is an amazing place with an amazing group of people. In fact, I am considering moving there.

The down side though, is that when you are in a tight nit group of people, you can often get trapped in groupthink.

The are many other interesting points on the list so check it out.
