Silicon has redefined how we live our day to day lives. Metalloids like silicon have properties of both metals and nonmetals; most importantly, they can act as both conductors and insulators of electricity. These semi-conductors are valuable for electronics, in which we need to regulate the pulses of electricity through a transistor to become a 0 or 1. Places like Silicon Valley (San Jose/San Francisco) and Silicon Beach (Santa Monica) would not exist without this valuable element.
