Eva de Valk (1984) is a Dutch journalist who lived in Silicon Valley for two and a half years. She worked as a correspondent for the national newspaper NRC Handelsblad, was a researcher for the 3-part tv-documentary about Silicon Valley for Dutch public television DWDD University and is the author of ‘Silicon Valley: Where the future is made’ (2014, Amsterdam: Lebowski Books).
Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn: all these major technology companies, as well as many start-ups, are based in the valley between San Francisco and San Jose, better known as Silicon Valley. Why is there so much innovation going on over there? What kind of people are living there, how do they think, what do their lives look like?

“With authority and well selected sources Eva de Valk explains how the rural area south of San Francisco turned into fertile soil for high tech companies. (...) A must read”
