Skolkovo Vegas

las-vegas-sign.jpgA translation of an amusing quote from Chadayev – he probably meant to compare Skolkovo to San Jose, but couldn’t remember the name the city.  Vegas?  Close enough.

Alexey Chadayev, head of the political department of the «United Russia» party, has already compared the future science-grad with the American Las Vegas.  A remarkably accurate comparison.  Las Vegas — this is such an international amusement center:  games of chance, stars of show business, maidens of easy behavior, elite boutiques, luxurious hotels, round-the-clock discotheques.
