"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," yet "all play and no work makes Jack a mere toy."
Are you caught between the balance of work and play? We'd like to introduce you to a little-known fun beachy entertainment mecca which has found itself directly in the heart of Santa Monica, California. This App shows "where to play" while "working hard".
"Silicon Beach" is the name used to describe this area centered along our beach that hosts a large and growing number of tech startups and investors. There are actually two other places that have been called "Silicon Beach", one in Australia, and one in San Diego. However, this latest iteration plans to overtake them both along with Silicon Valley, Silicon Prairie, and New York City, as the tech startup investment capital of the world.
Why? Two main reasons. First, because the money is here in Los Angeles, which is rated as the 3rd highest city economy in the world as ranked by Price Waterhouse Coopers. Second, because of the proximity to Hollywood. Silicon Beach is in the "Thirty Mile Zone" (TMZ), the area of Los Angeles with a large concentration of entertainment industry celebrities, studios, and companies. Many startups require the world's most talented celebrities, directors, cinematographers, and production effects specialists which can only be found here.
