One of the buildings I worked in for KPMG was on the site of one of the early Fairchild Semiconductor buildings.  One of the founders of Fairchild was Eugene Kleiner, who later went on to be a founding partner of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the VC fund that provided the money for most of the big Silicon Valley companies.  Most of the people who work in Silicon Valley owe their jobs, directly or indirectly, to the efforts of Eugene Kleiner.

As a side note, the Fairchild Semiconductor site is now an EPA superfund site.  Google now owns some of the site and has offices there.
