The original Silicon valley at the San Fransisco Bay area originates from Stanford university and graduates who stayed and started their businesses at the location. The university later developed a technology park to support the start-ups, but many well known companies actually started in a garage, and not in a fancy office.
The combination of university area, well educated people, nice climate and a free spirited environment was probably a good starting point.
The phenomena spread to other countries like south of France and the Sophia Antipolis area, and in Israel outside Tel Aviv, and other places.
The OS (operative system) is the nerve of the digital world. We have Windows, Mac OS, Chrome OS, Ubuntu, Linux etc, where the latter are mostly used by computer enthusiasts. And Mac OS, prefered by people in the graphic, music etc industry has been stable for a long time.

The number of countries that does not allow a grexit to any cost have shrunken to 4, now it’s only France, Italy, Spain and Luxembourg. 9 countries with Germany and Finland at the top are open for a grexit. And 5 other countries, Cyprus is in this group, are hesitating.

We wonder what the Greeks OXI was worth in the referendum just a week ago? We also wonder what will happen to Tsipras & Co who built a political career on promises of less austerity, not more?
We also wonder about the political process, the Greek parliament must vote for the suggested deal, and also other local parliaments around Europe.
Anybody around who thinks the drama is over?
Ever since the European currency was introduced it was meant to be irreversible. This one way character of the Euro was suppose to render strength to the system, and show the world that it was not a economic playground or an experiment.
No country would be allowed to default either. Thus buying government bonds from each other was a very good investment, no matter how bad the economic situation in a certain country had become.
However, economists outside Europe questioned the system and asked for a reversal mechanism, an ordered plan for exit. This was never considered by the EU politicians. The Euro was here to sty forever and ever.
