We haven’t had a major new technology company in more than 10 years. Silicon Valley is supposed to be a place where a couple of guys in a garage or a dorm room can start companies that change the world. It happened with Apple and Microsoft in the 1970s, AOL in the 1980s, Amazon, Yahoo, and Google in the 1990s, and Facebook in the 2000s. But the 2010s seem to be suffering from a startup drought. People are still starting startups, but the last really big tech startup success, Facebook, is 13 years old. Interesting article by Timothy B. Lee.
