Pt 246

New York City’s R train is the Silicon Subway, connecting high-tech startups to their workers @ NY Daily News. Includes open-source hardware 3D printer company, MakerBot!

The center of power in California’s Silicon Valley, the soul of the high-tech industry, is a sloping street that’s home to dozens of venture capital firms seeking wealth in the digital revolution.

New York has its own version of Sand Hill Road: A subway line that powers the city’s burgeoning e-scene.
A comprehensive Daily News analysis shows that the R line acts as the spine that connects the home bases of many of the city’s best-funded tech start-ups and the investors that bankroll them.

It’s New York’s Silicon Subway.

While much of the spotlight has focused on Internet giants that have set up shop in the city — Google, Yelp, LinkedIn, Facebook — The News examined the far more pervasive presence of homegrown e-commerce ventures.
