The Silicon Valley is the name used for the first time in...
The Silicon Valley is the name used for the first time in 1971 and, when we said this name, we refer to the south part of Santa Clara Valley in California, but often it’s an imprecise term because includes other parts of the great San Francisco Bay Area. Generally it’s considered to be the centre around the city of San Jose in Santa Clara valley. We called this area 'Silicon' because there were some makers of semiconductors and microchips and than some factories of computers. The most important city in this area and the chief town is San Jose. The first factory was created in 1939 but today there are some other as Aplle, Microsoft, eBay, Yahoo and other ... But the name ‘Silicon Valley’ was born in 1971 when Don Hoefler used this name in the newspaper ‘Electronic News’.The population in Silicon Valley is as indeterminate as its borders. In fact the population in Santa Clara is about 18 millions, but if we considered only ‘Silicon Valley’ the population is only about some millions.

BUT ATTENTION!<br />We mustn&apos;t to think that in Silicon Valley there are also rich people and everything is &apos;roses and flowers&apos;, in fact in this area there are some poverty. There are thousands of people that haven&apos;t an house, lives in the rodes and haven&apos;t money to sold something to eat.. so they must to steal for living, and the people that commit these crimes are often children.<br />The number of the &apos;homless&apos;, person without house, in the last 2 years grew by 8%. But is difficlut to think that in this area where in the last years jobs increased, there are a lot of poverty.This is possible because, for example, rent the house for a month costs from 2000 to 5000 dollars.<br />An other negative point is the behaviour of the State: it forbade to sleep in some areas and grew the psychiatric care by 20%. This zone is also call &apos;The Jungle&apos; because the life is very hard.<br /> a5.img.talkingpointsmemo.com
