Internet Address: www.siliconcalle.com: The High Technology Nexus of Cuba
First, there was Silicon Valley in the San Francisco estuary area. Then, the New York City area, not to be outdone, designated Silicon Alley as a place for East Coast information technology professionals to congregate. It is clear the USA has no monopoly in the high technology and communications arena. An exciting example of this statement is LINUX®. We would like to see Cuba be LINUX® enabled rather than Microsoft® dependent. We invite global LINUX® users and developers to join with us in rolling out our websites: www.cubalinux.com, www.cubalinux.net, and www.cubalinux.org.
Havana Bay Company, Inc. believes Latin America, as well as Asia, will increase their credibility and activity in high technology after the Millennium. Cuba will be a leader in these areas building upon the sophistication Cuba already has attained in biotechnology.
As you may know, Calle is the Spanish word for street or lane. Silicon, of course, refers to the computer chip and related industries.

Regular updates and appraisals of this economic sector in Cuba are the focus of this publication. Informational items and comments will be appreciated for future issues of Silicon Calle©.
