More than a year ago, I was contacted by a film maker on the East Coast who wanted to interview me for a short documentary on Robert Noyce and the history of Silicon Valley. I agreed and he filmed me for several hours one autumn morning, in my house and atop my water tower (I have the oldest home in the Valley). Afterward, distracted working on two books, I promptly forgot all about it.
Tonight, I suddenly discovered the finished documentary on another website. I was astonished how well it was done, and how comprehensive in its history. It also, especially in the last few minutes, it captures some of my thinking in my upcoming book The Autonomous Revolution (co-authored with Bill Davidow). I hope you find it entertaining — and a little eye-opening.
