Networking Differences - Silicon Valley and Boston

Published: 6/28/2007 10:08:22 AM

I've heard that the prevalance of event-oriented networking opportunities is far less in the Boston-Waltham region than in Silicon Valley.

Anyone agree or disagree with that assertion?  Is it the bad weather during winter in Boston that reduces the interest in getting to an event?  If so, then you'd think that during the good weather months, there would be all this pent-up demand for meeting and greeting?

In Silicon Valley, the number of networking opportunities for technology-related companies is amazing.  In any one week, there are probably 75 events, meetings, panels, etc to meet people and learn something new.

I'm not saying one is better than the other, just different.  I wonder why...
