Is Boston Still a Venture Capital Hotbed?

From the New York Times: Is Boston still a Venture Capital Hotbed? Now that Greylock is moving out, concentrating on Silicon Valley...

One quote stands out: "The differences start early; Stanford students think about working at start-ups while MIT students think about working at big companies"

There is also the conundrum that Boston-area companies reach a certain size, but don't go supernova (e.g. compare Lycos with Yahoo!).

Hopefully this article is being read by many people in the Boston area who are thinking "I'll show them!!", and will get fired up to create their own start-up.
