- From their corporate campuses on the west coast, America’s technology entrepreneurs used to ignore faraway Washington, DC—or mention the place only to chastise it for holding back innovation with excessive regulation.

- The campus is sixty hectares in size.
- An institution of higher education and its ambiance.
