I’ve now been a part of, if not fully immersed in, the wondrously innovative tech world that is Silicon Valley for a little over two months. As someone with zero technology background and until recently, very little interest in what goes on in this land of unicorns (yes, startups are actually referred to as ‘unicorns’ […]
