Silicon Valley has become the epicenter of the nation's -- maybe even the world's -- economy. Over a few decades, life-altering products, gigantic companies, whole new industries, and billion-dollar fortunes have been created. That's not just heady stuff; it's unprecedented in the history of the planet. It's only natural that so much success will give rise to pie-eyed pronunciamentos and even boorish behavior by technorati -- and, in response, hand-wringing and teeth-gnashing by the itchy tech media corps.
