Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in the heart of Silicon Valley

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger came to the heart of Silicon Valley Thursday morning to the headquarters of Intel, the world's largest chipmaker, to encourage Silicon Valley companies to represent themselves at Europe's giant trade show Cebit, in Hanover, Germany in early March 2009. (California state travel funds are available for first time Cebit attendees.)

It is the first time that Europe's largest business-to-business technology fair has chosen a state rather than a country as a partner.

Governor Schwarzenegger said that Cebit could help generate new revenues for California's high tech companies.

Here is a quick video of the event:
