3. Silicon Valley is the only place on Earth not trying to figure out how to become Silicon Valley. Robert Metcalfe
the San Francisco Bay Area, which is located in part of
the U.S. state of California known as Northern California.
It is home to many of the world's largest high-tech
corporations, as well as thousands of startup companies.
5. What does Silicon Valley mean geographically?What does Silicon Valley
Silicon Valley is an area that "located on the San Francisco,
California, peninsula, radiates outward from Stanford
University. It is contained by the San Francisco Bay on the
east, the Santa Cruz Mountains on the west, and the Coast
Range to the southeast. At the turn of the century, when fruit
orchards predominated, the area was known as the Valley of
Heart's Delight" - as Carolyn E. Tajnai, former Director (1988 1997) of Stanford Computer Forum begins one of her onlinemanuscripts that described Silicon Valley history.
6. Silicon Valley jobsOver the past 15 years, Silicon Valley has created some of the world's
most successful companies and best-paid workers, while shedding
the jobs and industries it no longer needs. As 2011 begins, the drama
of job creation and destruction continues ... the number of jobs in the
valley today is about the same as in 1995, the year Yahoo was
founded and three years before Google was born. Over the same
period, the population has grown by 20 percent. And, amid the Great
Recession, the number of people here who are unemployed -hovering around 100,000 for a year and a half -- is the highest since
the state began keeping comparable records in 1990. (San Jose
Mercury News, January 1, 2011)

Park, Palo Alto, California, 1953.
