Cities "over the hill" from Silicon Valley[edit]

Neither Santa Cruz nor Scotts Valley are in Silicon Valley. They're proximate. Since the most notable high-tech companies to come from Scotts Valley/Santa Cruz are not listed in the list of companies, I suspect this was an error and am removing them from the list. XSG 18:13, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Alphabetize[edit]

The list of companies should be alphabetized. XSG 18:15, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Berkeley and Santa Cruz[edit]

I have added both UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz back to the list of universities in the valley. My initial reason for this is because both universities operate extension programs in the area. However, a quick search of the campus websites reveals both universities also offer academic programs at facilities they maintain in the valley. If Carnegie Mellon's limited program run at Moffet qualifies CMU to be listed, then Santa Cruz's program run at Moffet and Berkeley's Haas satellite campus in Silicon Valley also qualify these universities to be listed.

Redwood City and San Mateo[edit]

Do these belong in a Silicon Valley template? If so, why aren't other nearby cities (e.g. Atherton, San Carlos, etc.) on the peninsula listed as part of the valley? If Redwood city counts as the valley, why isn't Cañada College (which is in Redwood City) listed in the colleges? My guess is that someone wants Oracle on the list of SV companies and can only justify it by including Redwood City in the valley.

So, it seems an editorial decision has to be made, include most of the peninsula in the valley or lose Redwood City, San Mateo, Oracle and any other peninsula-based company. What do others think? Vantelimus (talk) 23:32, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
