Cottage Industry

 


 
Adafruit is a small electronics company in SoHo that was started by a girl engineer right out of college.

Remember when people in Burbank used to be handy?

What happened?

Instead, we have penny ante real estate interests and developers. Yuck.

      There used to be dozens of companies like that in Burbank. Now even the more modern service industries which replaced manufacturing are going elsewhere.
