Techno Trivia

The first technology corporation to move into California’s Silicon Valley was Hewlett-Packard, in 1938. Stanford University engineers Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard started their company in a Palo Alto garage with $1,538. Their first product was an audio oscillator bought by Walt Disney Studios for use in the making of Fantasia.

Don't it make ya wonder? so many of us are not rich simply because we didn't have a garage to brainstorm in?
I am reading Outliers by Malcom Gladwell ( Blink) who isleft that out in his study to determine why certain types of people are successful; he's fundamentally nurture over Nature, that simply a high IQ doesn't predetermine great contributions. but now you mention it, maybe having a garage was a big part of it.
