Silicon Valley has often been imitated but never duplicated. Though pieces of its history have been told, they have focused primarily on the Valley’s role in the development of silicon chips and computers. Yet there is a much bigger and largely untold story: for every decade or so since the early 1900s, Silicon Valley has spawned or nurtured not just new products but whole new industries: Vacuum tubes. Radio. Radar. Integrated circuits. Venture Capital. PCs. Printers. Genetic Engineering. Software. Networking hardware. The Internet. Social media. Cloud computing. Mobile.
The full scope and drama of the region’s evolution will be revealed in Silicon Valley: The Untold Story.
