Tim, I am not too sure about this. No single piece of open source software
comes to my mind when hearing bay area or silicon Valley. And no people
living there and no company located there. Except the Gnu c compiler and
may postgres no single piece of open source software came out of the United
states, at least not without pressure from software from other countries,
mostly German speaking, Scandinavia, Asia.
Might I suggest, then, that you're not very familiar with open source
software. The basis of modern UNIX is BSD, and its related free license,
out of Berkeley, California. Add to that the output of major firms like Sun
Microsystems (Java) and Google (Android) for their contributions to the
FLOSS landscape, and it's hard to find anywhere else in the world with more
Do you not have the impression beeing located in the
United states poisons
the minds of people and has quite a bad influence on the technology output
Poisons? Too odd to merit a response.
