Wow, that is a long time ago.

Is there any manufacturing left in the valley?

Tesla in Fremont at the old GM/NUMMI plant; Flextronics in Milpitas, and a few smaller ones, but pretty much all on the east side of the bay. A Forbes article [1] on this from 2012.

Google killed RSS when they killed Reader.

He was definitely being snarky
