Well, I think it is also because I work here, I am an electronics genius
But on a more serious note, I read the article and it seems to be about software related companies, not electronic related (which
is where the name SILICON valley comes from).
I wonder whether the writer of the article correctly distinguishes between a company having its headquarters here (for tax reasons)
or whether any work is actually done here.
Another thing, engineers like me who are in relatively short supply and who are mobile tend to look for a job in a place where
both quality of life and net salary are high. In Europe you then pretty quickly end up in Switzerland (or on the cote d'azur which
is also kind of like the european silicon valley).
But, to be honoust, in my line of work (integrated electronics) I have the feeling Switzerland is not the hotbed of activity the article
makes us believe. Looking at where the openings are I would say that England (or great britain, whatever the name is) is the main
hotbed in europe....
My vote for where I want the silicon valley of Europe to be: Ticino...
