What makes Silicon Valley tick? If you build a research park, will they come? For over half a century, regions around the world have been trying to find the answers to these questions and to build high-tech success stories of their own. While most places have fallen short of their silicon dreams, the search for the next Silicon Valley has helped export a particularly Californian aesthetic and way of doing business across the globe. It also has shown the degree to which the Valley’s success was not only an American phenomenon, but also a Californian one – rooted in this state’s history, its politics, and its culture.
