The Peopling of Silicon Valley, 1940 to the Present Day:

The Peopling of Silicon Valley, 1940 to the Present Day: An Oral History I highly recommend this book. The Peopling of Silicon Valley,to the Present Day An Oral History puts a human face on the Valley It does not pretend to be a history of the entire Valley during this period or of the technology industries for which the place is now famous This is a personal history of a cross section of the people who have settled here and of the place they call home with just enough of the technology story to make it interestingThe book encompasses the five major migrations to the Valley since World War II the GIs, Lockheed, the chip makers, the minicomputer folks, and the software and web developers Each is, if not the dominant group, at least a group representative of a particular period that lasted fifteen years or Each wave of people brought with it both increased economic prosperity and social change This is their story, told as much as possible in their own wordsTim Stanley is the author of The Last of the Prune Pickers A Pre Silicon Valley Story, a popular local history
