Fortune Magazine published an article entitled about Academgorodok, Novosibirsk entitled The new Silicon Valley. It is the most delicious-ed article with Russia as a tag, outdoing even English Russia, and its very wrong.
Once upon a time I would have gone to great lengths to explain why, but having read new Silicon Valley articles about, Cambridge, Mass, Cambridge UK, Bangalore, New York (Silicon Alley), China, Moscow etc there is little reason to specifically rubbish Academgorodok. The author conspicuously fails to explain how Academgorodok will suddenly develop the attributes which makes Silicon Valley home to a unique successful risk-taking culture and Academgorodok to unfeasibly large mosquitos.
