"Troublemakers: Silicon Valley's Coming of Age" by Leslie Berlin
Our guest is Leslie Berlin, who is the Project Historian for the Silicon Valley Archives at Stanford University. Originally from Tulsa, Berlin has a new book out that offers nothing less than the history of Silicon Valley. As was noted of this book by The New York Times: "[A] deeply researched and dramatic narrative of Silicon Valley's early years.... Meticulously told stories permit the reader to gain a nuanced understanding of the emergence of the broader technology ecosystem that has enabled Silicon Valley to thrive.... [A] compelling history." Please note that Berlin will appear here in Tulsa tonight (Tuesday the 28th) at a Book Smart Tulsa event connected with this volume, which is called "Troublemakers: Silicon Valley's Coming of Age." The event begins at 7pm, at Congregation B'Nai Emunah (at 1719 S. Owasso Avenue).
