The End of Silicon Valley?

After Selling His Startup For $1.2 Billion, Yammer CEO (David Sacks) Calls The End Of Silicon Valley:

  1. Escape attention of major Internet companies (which Sacks says are better run than ever before)
  2. Launch and prove a business for ~ $5 million or less (the average seed plus Series A round)
  3. Find an idea that can be protected (patented) from big companies once they realize what you’re up to.
  4. Avoid patent lawsuits.

“How many ideas like that are left?” he asks.
