One thing that struck me while I was in Los Angles last week was that the people I met kept saying the same thing: media, entertainment and technology are converging (yes, THAT word) on Los Angeles. The simple fact that the biggest music and Hollywood players are there, and the act that it is an hour’s plane ride from Silicon Valley, and an hour’s drive from San Diego (where the many of the big mobile firms are) means LA is ideally placed to become the physical manifestation of “convergence”. You can already pick it up in the fact that just about everybody, from young to old has a MySpace page, while amongst early adopters Helio (the 3G network) is the cool mobile brand, and YouTube is commonly known about.
