It's a small world after all

The tech community in Philly is pretty close-knit. Out for breakfast at a local diner this morning with a VC from Internet Capital Group, we ran into Safeguard Scientifics founder Pete Musser and the CEO of a local B2B software startup. This reminds me of the boom years at places like Bucks and Il Fornaio in Silicon Valley — you would always see someone you knew in the industry, or a friend of a friend. When I started having that experience in New York (a much more diversified city with far greater restaurant options), I knew it was time to get out.
