Silicon Valley Is Not Your Friend

Near about 1990 when Netscape was started. Our friend was one of the founders he left the University for “Netscape”.

1997, When we barely know about Google, but the search engine was good so we were using Google. I wasn’t using to search, but my husband and brother both were using google for search. They told me you should use Google. I told them what is Google:) so funny now if I meet with anybody they tell me, just Google it, I say what!!!! OK….

After few years 2007, when Facebook was the very new company. My friend asks me if I know Facebook, I told her yes. She told me you know, Mark is from Palo Alto High School. He started Facebook when he is in high school. A few years later, my friend invites me to sign up for the Facebook friend. I did but I am lazy to go and check.:(

Twitter, was started 2006. 2008, when I was doing shopping at the Whole foods. It was the new store in our area. But not for Silicon Valley. In the grocery line, somebody was asking me what is this Twitter. I told her “describe your talk in one line”, kind of. I didn’t really know but barely know about. Still, don’t’ know. (Sorry).

We had the very bad economy, drought for so many years. But this is The Silicon Valley.

We have so my hidden treasures in our Bay area. I am always in Silicon Valley, but still, don’t know a lot. 🙂
