Three years ago, when we started “Takes from Silicon Valley East”, we didn’t realize the sheer amount of dedication, perseverance, and diligence that would be required to create new content twice a week. To celebrate our third anniversary, we want to take this opportunity to thank our guest bloggers. Because of your contributions, we’ve made it to 300 posts!

This past year, we are continuing to feature posts from thought leaders like Dr. Jim Morris, Fremont Unified School District Superintendent and Derek Anderson, Founder & CEO of Startup Grind. We also launched new series, including a regular re-cap post about theStartup Grind Fremont monthly fireside chats. These are just a few of the contributors we’ve worked with in the past year.

Below you’ll find a list of our most-read posts from the last twelve months. If you haven’t already subscribed to our blog and followed us on Twitter, sign up today! As always, we appreciate your feedback and comments on our posts.

Welcome to our blog – Takes from Silicon Valley East! Our view is slightly different here on the east side of the bay – from the Mission Peak backdrop to the advanced manufacturing companies that dot our boulevards. As we become more urban and strive to interpret the business issues affecting our innovation economy, we want to share with you our observations, insights, photos, arguments, agreements, inspirations and CEO interviews – and here on our blog is exactly where we plan to do this.
