​Anticipating a population surge in the Bay Area, Silicon Valley hospitals are rushing to grab market share, particularly in women’s and children’s care.

Talk to VCs, and they’ll tell you: If this is a bubble, it’s not like any we’ve seen before.

Long the pastime of Silicon Valley's tech elite, Ultimate is at a crossroads. Will going pro tarnish the game's ideals? http://bizj.us/v8mr3
Ultimate, the flying disc game that spread beyond its hippie roots to become a fixture of Silicon Valley tech culture, counts luminaries like Google Inc. co-founder Sergey Brin, venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson and 500 Startups co-founder Dave McClure. Now Ultimate, which blends egalitarian ideals and tech-culture competitiveness is hitting an existential crossroads.

Growing up in India and England, Neeru Khosla wanted to be a doctorn and while her educational foundation has grown during a broader boom in education tech entrepreneurship, she never saw herself as a potential founder.

During the dot-com boom, Silicon Valley was home to insular Internet and hardware companies. But today’s boom is different. http://bizj.us/xd4w9

Today's economic boom covers a wide swath of industries chasing disrupters in fields like automotive (Tesla Motors), hospitality (Airbnb), retail (eBay), finance (Square), logistics (Uber), robotics (Google) and media (Facebook).
Corporate delegations to the region aren’t new. But those following the trend say the influx during the current tech boom is different, in both scope of industries and companies’ reasons for being here.

Silicon Valley tech workers are spending unprecedented sums to influence the 2014 elections, but will their ambitions drown in D.C.'s mire? http://bit.ly/1suJ7ee
Can Silicon Valley actually hold its own as a special interest group vying for the attention of lawmakers against Wall Street, real estate tycoons and energy companies? Beyond that, will tech turn a shade of Republican red as it places bets on the incoming Congress to get its way on issues like immigration and tax reform?
