High-Tech Meets Hollywood in Playa Vista

Hosted by  • 

Move over Facebook, Microsoft and Snapchat. Google is coming to Playa Vista on 900,000 acres next to the “Spruce Goose” hangar, a relic of innovation past.  Google's arrival is expected to combine technology and entertainment and create a new center-weight for Silicon Beach.  We hear the advance hype.  Also, a new segment of Cargoland: as automation takes over the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, what’s in store for 6000 temporary longshore workers and their families?
