In camera double-exposure shot

The 50 miles (80km) between San Francisco and San Jose California is known as Silicon Valley, the world's center of high technology, but San Francisco is becoming 'Silicon City', as I'll describe below. This is the Bay Bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge is to the right of this view. No HDR.

I was literally hanging off the cliff to get this perspective.

 

It is amazing how many high technology companies are located in Silicon Valley.

 

Apple, NetFlix, Quora, Cisco and Juniper (the backbone of the internet), Google, YouTube, Facebook, Adobe (Photoshop, PDF files), Intuit, Tango, LSI Logic, Symantic, Nvidia, Hewlet Packard, eBay, PayPal, Yahoo, Palm, Intel (in almost every computer), AMD and Applied Materials (the rest of the chips inside nearly all computers), turntable.fm (crack for the head) vmWare (virtual servers), Appcelerator (a great app dev. framework), Y-Combinator (The birthplace of numerous startups), Mozilla (Firefox browesr), Pandora (Internet radio in Oakland), Sun Microsystems, SmugMug photo website hosting and sharing, LinkedIn (the biggest corporate social networking site),Oracle (#1 database company), monster.com, Bloom Energy, Tesla Motors, Genentech, and many more.

 

But San Francisco is home to hundreds of high-tech startups and and better known companies such as Flickr, Twitter, SalesForce (cloud computing) Wikimedia (wikipedia), Zynga (80 million users play farmville etc.), UStream, Metacafe, DropBox, RapLeaf, Blurb (photo books), Dolby Labs, Stumbleupon, Digg (THE way to go viral on the internet until Reddit (Also in SF) came along), Craigslist (the biggest want-ad website with local versions around the world), Yelp (recommendations on restaurants and other things, soon worldwide), Autodesk, (the leading computer design software company), Typekit, QuantCast (Web analytics), Twilio, Square(mobile payments), GitHub, Riverbed,Heroku (cloud computing/online customer database systems), Second-life (the biggest online virtual reality game played by over 800,000 people around the world). And let's not forget Wired Magazine....etc...etc..

 

Genentech, Lucasfilm and Pixar are also within a few miles of where I took this shot.

 

There is an energetic feel to this place that is hard to describe, but perhaps a view from this spot is the best way to show it in a photograph.

 

Okay, this really is the last upload of the year. So I hope you have a great holiday season. I have some nice seascapes from my Big Sur summit meetup with Ivan Makarov to start off the new year.

 

The map shows exactly where this is. It is another place not for the faint of heart!

Google, Yahoo!, Facebook, Foursquare, Twitter, Wikipedia, Amazon, Mozilla, AOL, eBay, PayPal, IAC, LinkedIn, OpenDNS, Zynga will make an internet black out on January 23.

We must not use Internet on that day and support our rights to be free and say NO to censorship.

 

This is our time to act, it is just a very simple thing to do and can change the history of Internet forever. Tell your friends, coworkers and family about SOPA and PIPA. Protest on your social accounts and share the information. It affects us all.

Okay, this one is pretty kickass. I made this cake for Zynga's company picnic (Zynga is the company that makes those popular games everyone plays on Facebook and on their iPhones). From bottom to top: Playing cards (Poker), an open laptop, stack of money (Mafia Wars), treasure chest (Treasure Isle), barn (FarmVille), fish w/reef (FishVille), hamburger (Cafe World). This cake stood about 3 feet tall!
