Palo Alto is a city on the San Francisco Peninsula (part of the Silicon Valley), home to Stanford University and several successful computer industries.

Palo Alto's sister city in Sweden is Linköping.

A good description of high-tech life in Palo Alto around 1995 is found in the novel by Douglas Coupland, "Microserfs". One visible trend at the time was people moving to live in San Francisco but driving down the 280 to work in the valley.
