Silicon Valley S.F. Southern Neighbor

By Bob T.

from Eastern Michigan

Verified Reviewer

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.

Incredibly Well Done!

Comments about PBS American Experience: Silicon Valley DVD:

Clears any fuzziness about how American ingenuity tied technology, sales, politics, intelligence, education, and sheer drive together to turn this country into the technological leader of computer innovation. If you are unclear as to how all of that was born and grew, you will be blown away at how one thing led to another to create that magic. From simple beginnings evolved complex physics driven technology that changed the world as we know it. Shown in layman's terms as good as any well crafted prime time drama - only this is real. Opened up my thinking on how ingenuity and opportunity are waiting for someone to harness the next turning point for mankind. Blew me away.
