Smart Valley - Silicon Valley is the world center for information technology, but we are not using it effectively for our own community, and our communications infrastructure is lagging behind that of many other major urban centers.

Wireless Silicon Valley - Smart Valley has partnered with city and county IT managers, and economic development staff to form the Wireless Silicon Valley Task Force.
