Silicon Valley Historical Association
Over 30 years ago, the Silicon Valley Historical Association believed that society was going through a rapid period of technological change that would alter the lives of everyone on the planet— similar to the changes that took place during the Italian Renaissance period.
We began filming high-tech entrepreneurs and inventors. We asked the interviewees about their beginnings, the struggles that they faced, their mentors, their lucky breaks, and their visions for the future. With their stories, we hope to educate the public about the unique people and supportive environment in Silicon Valley that has made it possible for many of the technological changes to take place that we are seeing in the world today — the computer, the Internet, genetic engineering and breakthrough medical technologies — just to name a few.
