Nah--Silicon Valley is on the way down. Wages may be high--but that's
because living costs are out of this world. Living conditions are likewise
terrible--if you want a decent place to live, you have to commute for hours
through murderous traffic. Crime is high, and so are taxes and government
regulation. The trend is toward more livable areas, like Austin, Dallas,
North Carolina, etc.
