Isn’t LA Already A Tech Hub?

Is LA The Next Tech Hub? We argue it already is. With Caltech, JPL, Information Sciences Institute, UCLA, USC... to name a few. We air a clip from LA mayoral candidate Eric Garcetti’s keynote speech at Silicon Beach Fest where he discusses his plans to make Los Angeles a technology hub.

... He [Eric Garcetti] mentioned the James Webb Space Telescope, which is going to see back to the big bang, is being built here in LA and you don’t necessarily hear about that. He didn't mention that SpaceX... the first private company to dock with the International Space Station, well that was built here in Hawthorne. So when we talk about LA not being a tech city, you know we are ignoring some of the most high technology... enterprises and companies that have ever been created.
