3Com moves east!

Not wanting to be outdone by Dave Winer, 3Com has announced that it is moving its headquarters from Silicon Valley to Massachusetts.

“Two-thirds of 3Com’s U.S. opportunity is on the East Coast, and approximately half of our sales are in Europe, meaning the majority of our customers and partners are more accessible from Marlborough than Santa Clara,” said CEO Bruce Chaflin in a statement. “Most of the major financial institutions that represent our investor base are also on the East Coast.”

Andrew Anker comments that what he noticed about this announcement by 3Com was that no one here in the Valley seemed to care. Amen!
