  1. Why was Ebay included in this at all let alone as the host? This summit was supposed to be for Tech Companies and Ebay has proven over and over this year that they do not qualify as one.

    They discuss wanting to level the playing field on wages and taxes yet Ebay pays some of the lowest wages around and tend to hire more HB1 Visa workers than qualified American workers, so if they are so worried about wages and property taxes let them move their offices to India where they seem to be farming most of their programming out to. Then they can experience what it is like to live on the wages that are paid over there and live the full experience of what they encourage by outsourcing their work.

  2. California is so over-regulated it’s astounding. A lot of companies leave because of the red tape, the high cost and the lawsuit environment. Silicon Valley is now the place that replaces all of it’s skilled professionals with H1-B guest workers who got their diploma in a tent and will work for $10 an hour. Speaking with lobbyists over lunch will probably just result in 400 new bills being written and higher taxes. I can’t believe E Bay hasn’t moved to Hong Kong yet.
