Silicon Roundabout, Island

In Internet on 14/07/2012 at 4:52 am

S’pore wants to be some kind of Silicon …. But

—Google provides office space and assistance to new technology companies in London’s “Silicon Roundabout”.

— NY’s hopeful answer to Silicon Valley. Actually it is trying to centralise activities that are happening in the city hopping to get more bang for the buck.

Despite all the hype from A*STAR, EDB etc, we are a IP hub only because govmin willing to punish those who break IP, not because of creative people. We arrest them for vandalism etc.

Oh and we got accident-prone, dysfunctional Yahoo!. A lot of its Asian operations are located here.

Our Silicion ambitions going the way of M’sia’s Cyberjaya?

  1. So far,the ambitions that worked are those with direct foreign(mainly Western) participation,without them mere pipe dream.

  2. Very hard without friends, with friends it is definitely possible.
