About valleypeople

valleypeople is an online zine for and about the people of Silicon Valley, regardless of their physical location. It's driven by the recognition that innovation is driven by people in all their complexity, that opportunity emerges in the strangest of places, and that success on terms other than your own is an oxymoron.

valleypeople is owned by Mary Eisenhart, as is its parent site, YOYOW.com.

YOYOW.com's mission is to enable ongoing relationships between writers and readers, independently of conventional publishing models, and to explore possible new business models to help such relationships flourish.

All articles on the valleypeople site are copyrighted as noted by their authors; reproduction without the author's permission is explicitly forbidden. valleypeople is a self-publication venue for its writers, and claims no ownership of their work.
