Thanks as always for the good observations. As a resident of one of those spiky cities - and one that regularly sees promising tech companies get bundled up an moved elsewhere when they prove promising - I see both sides of what is going on.

Humans like to hang out with other humans, that's very much in our primate nature.

Proximity is a killer app. You would be interested in what the Internet2 folks are doing with full immersion video walls - you might not be close enough to share coffee, but you can see enough of what the other person is doing to get more of a visceral sense of what is going on than the typical grainy tv-quality display.
