The keys to the car, or just the garage

Silicon Valley is filled with tales of garage-based startups. Some of those garages are now revered as historic places. Of course, not every company was started in a garage, but notables like Hewlett-Packard and Apple Computer will keep the myths worthy.

In the late 90’s, the garage mentality gave way to adrenalin junkies flush with venture capital, and we all know what happened next. In the midst of it all, two guys started another company in a garage, and now it sports a market capitalization exceeding $100 billion. And we all know who that is.

Don’t completely discount the need for the car keys though – you have to make space, don’t you?
