For the last twenty years, new technologies incubated at companies in the Silicon Valley have been always pioneering the innovations of information technology, and led multiple waves of IT revolutions that have fundamentally changed the ways of living in the human society on the earth. Internet and broadband technologies have delivered information service from the corporate realm to the masses of the consumer world; Wireless connectivities and new user interfaces have made it possible for every individual to access resource and connect to others from anywhere with a single touch, a voice tone or a gesture; Cloud computing becomes not only a dominating platform for e-commerce business and social network, but also a permanent center for stream data entertainment and web hosting.
