Life in San Jose is expensive. The housing market is one of the most expensive in the United States. This seems odd when you consider San Jose was the first civilian colony established in the area and those brave to settle the area were given farm implements, seeds, animals and a monthly stipend. You might say San Jose blossomed from that point.
San Jose has long been known for pioneering new products. From farm equipment to the earliest commercially available computers, the area seems to breed innovators and the origin of the high-technology revolution brought about the city's largest population boom from the 1950s to the 1980s and gave San Jose the nickname "The Capital of Silicon Valley."
IBM helped to kick off San Jose's high-tech economy in 1952 when the company opened a research and development facility in downtown San Jose. The development of the IBM 305 RAMAC (random access method of accounting and control) was publicly announced in September, 1956, and the computer industry began the drive to produce smaller, faster, more affordable devices.
The introduction of Silicon-based integrated circuit paved the way for faster devices. Silicon is a chemical element that conducts electricity. Unlike metals, the higher the temperature the better silicon conducts the electricity. Today, Silicon is used by companies to make transistors which are used in televisions, radios, computers, cell phones and more.
Though other cities have adopted nicknames including the word silicon, San Jose continues to be the leader in the ongoing high-technology revolution. Timothy J. Sturgeon said, "Perhaps the strongest thread that runs through the (Silicon) Valley's past and present is the drive to 'play' with novel technology, which, when bolstered by an advanced engineering degree and channeled by astute management, has done much to create the industrial powerhouse we see in the Valley today."
