Some people say there will never be an Aussie version of Silicon Valley (Patrick Stafford at SmartCompany, 14 February 2013)
while others say it will be in WA (PerthNow, 14 January 2013) or is already in QLD (Dynamic Business, 4 May 2012).
Other news articles suggest that if Australia cannot replicate Silicon Valley then Australian companies can still take advantage of
the entrepreneurship and technology that drives Silicon Valley by setting up there or by just visiting.
Australian states and cities can learn from how the US cities tackle the issue of not being Silicon Valley. If, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” then the Techweek model might be a friend to Australia. Could an Australian city become a stop on the Techweek tour in 2014?
