    Mr. Tostevin said there is “a herd effect” when it comes to living in San Francisco. “As the most established tech center, there is a large pre-existing pool of talent in San Francisco. For a company looking for experienced employees… this is the place to be,” he said. His article covered overall metrics and included this chart which appeared in the WSJ yesterday which appears to show an overall talent pool larger than that of San Francisco. Since I can't read what was in the man's mind - not sure what his comment about "Austin's Got the Talent" was based on - overall head count, quality of the talent pool - who knows.

    Wall Street Journal Article which has a bit more information that the one from Silicon Valley Business Journal.

    Logan, since you've been in the business for 30 some years now, did you ever read anything by John R. Talbott and his predictions about housing etc. in the early 2000s? If so, what did you think and do you see any similarities in today's market? When I sold in early 2006, I gave a copy of his latest book at the time (Sell Now!: The End of the Housing Bubble) to my realtor who was not amused since she and her husband had just purchased a new McMansion - I don't believe that purchase worked out very well.

    Kind of got that idea about something to fear from this: "We feel the current system works well, it's time-tested, and there are all kinds of reasons why political influence at the Fed is a bad thing," said Bob Lameier, president of the Ohio group and head of Miami Savings Bank in Miamitown, near Cincinnati. Wonder if he gave any specifics to the "all kinds of reasons" ?
