... and all the clients will be logically thinking young people. with
no biases and no predefined stereotypes. they will make sure they pay
there bills on time and they will not be trying to fuck you from day 1.
unfortunatly any startup company that is not backed with serious capital
needs to accept almost every job it can get, and if it cant get most
of them due to some middleaged business man's discrimination against
it - due to the fact that the office is in brighton, or they don't
have an office or they don't wear suits or whatever, it won't survive.
i agree with you logically but i see a big difference in reality.

however, the major (only?) resource that this theoretical company has is
people and most of them are london based anyway so anywhere outside the
M25 is probably not going to leverage the main resource and the company
would be dead from day #1
however on a trivia note, i'd be willing to bet that _the_ city makes the most
profit per area in the UK, but thats a trivia point

ok, ignoring the other figures and concetrating on the two steves ...
Woz was an A class engineer and C/D class business guy
Jobs was a B class engineer but also a B class business guy
and marketeer (bullshitter)
if they seperatly formed companys Woz would create the most technically
brilliant corporatopia (i just made that up ;-) ), Jobs would make the
most money - i'm certainly arguing in this ``debate'' (although that
implies too much conflict) that job's way is best others may feel woz's
way is best
