Making Silicon Valley book cover
Making Silicon Valley
Innovation and the Growth of High Tech, 1930-1970 (Inside Technology)
Christophe Lecuyer - 2007-08-24 (впервые опубликовано в 2005)
Рейтинг Goodreads
This non-fiction book titled "Making Silicon Valley" explores the growth and innovation of the San Francisco-area electronics industry which led to the formation of Silicon Valley as an industrial district. The author uses science and technology studies to trace the emergence of innovative practices by following key groups of engineers and entrepreneurs. Along with the military patronage and procurement, the influence of local institutions of higher learning is also considered. The book argues that unique competencies in manufacturing, product engineering, and management made the growth of the largest Silicon Valley firms possible, which in turn served as models and incubators for other electronics ventures in the area.

One chapter in and this book is blowing me away. The vacuum tube industry as an early driver of SV, even before HP and Varian, and arguing for ham radio culture as a major driver      источник

Enjoying @tylercowen and @danielgross book, but while it is ostensibly written about how to judge the talent of others, it feels like that is a way to smuggle in a book about understanding our own talent. Or maybe I am just self obsessed.      источник

The Soul of A New Machine book cover
The Soul of A New Machine
Tracy Kidder - 2000-06-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1981)
Рейтинг Goodreads
This book takes a deep look into the computer revolution and the intense work culture that came with it, focusing on the engineers of a company called Data General who built a new 32-bit minicomputer in just one year. Through real-life stories, the author sheds light on the "total commitment" philosophy of managing technical creation and the extreme measures engineers took to meet impossible deadlines. A thought-provoking read that explores concepts that still resonate today.

Corn and Horrigan’s beautiful book about past views of the future is a nice corrective. You would not read this book and think “wow, our views of the future have been universally too pessimistic”      источник

Finally finished One Billion Americans. Amazing, big, bold, beautiful book. I don’t endorse every policy but that’s not the point. The point is we need to think bigger (population), and that is correct.      источник
