Imagine if the entire Internet were encased inside the boundaries of the United States.
Now imagine that all the original search engines, the ones that were around before the dotcom bubble, are in an area the size of the original 13 colonies, arrayed along a watery coastline.
Now imagine further, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Foursquare, Instagram, YouTube and all the rest, a geographical states, crammed in between the original 13 and the “Appalachian Mountains.”
Now imagine the rest of the country of the United States before the Louisiana Purchase being totally empty and wild.
THAT’S what the entire Internet is right now.
And instead of it being crammed into the boundaries of the continental United States, the virtual real estate of the Internet goes on infinitely.
So, go West.
Build something—an idea, a strategy, a platform, a city—out there, that all the folks “back East” will marvel at.
