Anybody who have to deal with Silicon Valley should listen to this “history lesson” about the Valley. Even though most of my readers probably know a lot about the Valley from personal experience or books like AnnaLee Saxenian‘s 1994 classic, listening to this lecture will put the history in a different perspective.
