Yes, Palo Altans are different.

Just for the fun of it, I decided to follow the links on the home page to the Mountain View Voice and MP/Atherton Almanac and look at their Town Square Forums. Wow, what a difference. There are only a fraction of the number of topics we have and only appear to be a couple of dozen new comments a day. What is it with us? Do we care more? Are we more tuned in to technology, or what? I am beginning to believe that there is something about being Palo Alto that the other communities just don't have.
