The forms of innovation in California ideology: The rhetorics, models and transformations of the start-up economy

In the collective imagination, Silicon Valley represents the epicentre of the changes generated by the digital revolution.
The text investigates the type of innovation produced by the start-up economy through the exploration of its multiple declinations, in time and form.
