Forbes: How Nobel laureate Elinor Ostrom explained Silicon Valley. And didn’t even realize it.Posted: June 13, 2012
I have started a new regular column in Forbes, which I’m calling “Riffs from the Rainforest.” You can read it at: http://blogs.forbes.com/victorhwang/. I’m genuinely excited about this chance to write for such a venerable publication and to share these ideas with new readers worldwide.
I’ll be writing about the same core themes — the nature of innovation ecosystems, the intersection of private venture and public policy, how to grow entrepreneurial startups in hard places — but now with a bigger platform and potential reach. My first column is about Nobel laureate Elinor Ostrom, who sadly passed away on Tuesday, but not before leaving a legacy of groundbreaking work that strikes at the heart of why certain communities are so productive, and why others are not.

I’ll still be posting here, particularly the non-linear stuff that might seem strange on Forbes. So, stay tuned, and thanks for reading…
