Going Coastal

By Laura Tiffany

Let's face it: There's no catching up to Silicon Valley. Really, the big challenge is to place as the second hottest tech area, and the upstart Digital Coast (i.e. Southern California) is ready and willing to take its place as second best.

"When broadband happens, the Internet will shift from being just an information and communications medium to being also an entertainment medium," predicts Jason McCabe Calacanis, editor and CEO of Rising Tide Studios, producers of the SiliconAlleyDaily.com and DigitalCoastWeekly.com newsletters. This, Calacanis says, should create a market for online motion pictures, and L.A. will naturally be ready to take the best supporting role.
