Fantastic-sharing w/family & friends

Comments about PBS American Experience: Silicon Valley DVD:

This video is a well made documentary about the advancement in electronics in the U.S. from the late forties with the invention of the transistor through the current era of microelectronics. It is amazing how these advancements have affected the entire world, not to mention the transformation of farmland in California to Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley S.F. Southern Neighbor

Comments about PBS American Experience: Silicon Valley DVD:

Yes very enjoyable. I enjoyed this movie, thanks to Fareed Zakaria recommending on his Sunday GPS program. I think it should hold the interest of Geeks like me, and laymen (my wife who I held hostage) to watch it. She didn't complain and I think liked the nostalgic the old cars, computers & laboratories. Will rank with the story of Thomas Edison and earlier inventors.
