Vivek Wadhwa: 'Location, location, location' is not mantra for tech success now

Opinion: Oculus, the latest technology startup to be acquired for billions of dollars, was based not in Silicon Valley but in Irvine, Calif. Snapchat, which is rumored to be worth billions, is based in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles area is a good place to live and has great weather, but it has no real advantage as a technology center. These companies could have been based anywhere with equal success. You can't predict which technology hub the next Oculus will come from--or whether it will be a hub at all. Anyone anywhere--whether in an incubator, garage or tent--can now build world-changing technology.

Vivek Wadhwa: Why I'm excited about the promising future of medicine

Healthcare Opinion: Health care is a misnomer for our medical system. It should be called sick care. Doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies only make money when we are in bad health. If we could instead prevent illness and disease, it would turn the entire medical system on its head and increase the quality of our lives. The good news is that technology is on its way to letting us do this.
