Because California has so many people, who need jobs, and technology is advancing more in the computer world, so therefore more computer and internet companies need to be made.

Why not? The more people working on the internet and working on computers, Technology will advance quicker throughout the U.S. and soon to the other countries.

That's where the computer revolution started. That's why the Silicon Valley is called that.

Software apples don't roll far from the tree...

Here in Silicon Valley, it is so much easier to start a company. The VC's are here, the engineers are here and, most important, the attitude is here.

Defense department(DARPA), Xerox PARC, Stanford University, and UC Berkeley were all leaders in computer science.

Once something like this gets started, it keeps going without any planning... you can start a computer company elsewhere, but you'll spend all your time on planes trying to interview experienced engineers, or raise capital. Your employees will be at a disadvantage because the people they hang out with won't be connected to other tech firms in the area.

Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, et al are from this area. A whole bunch of those nerds started stuff in their garages way back when. With the amount of fellow geniuses churning out of the schools here (Stanford, UC Berkeley, etc.) it just exploded. Kicking myself for passing over the geeks in favor of the jocks in high school now!
