What was the top story of 2011?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Nick Veronin

"I think the biggest story from the viewpoint of Silicon Valley is probably the death of Steve Jobs."

Mike Mulkey, Mountain View

"I think the biggest story this year was the Japan tsunami."

Gary D. Young, Mountain View

"The Federal Reserve distributed almost $8 trillion in bailout money around the world. I think without a doubt that's the biggest news story. And the fact that Congress claims that they had no idea that was going on."

Fallean Mintz, San Jose

"For me, 2011's biggest event was Steve Jobs' death. I think that changed the dynamic at Apple. I look up to that company, and that was a big event for me."

Vikram Dave

"I think the biggest problem in 2011 was the European debt crisis."

Steve Muller, Sunnyvale
