About the Hey Tech! Blog
Original post made by Angela Hey on Sep 16, 2008
Comment here to tell me what you'd like to see covered in the paper and in the blog. I want to hear about hot Mountain View startups, user frustrations with technology and stories about local technology pioneers.

Break with tradition a bit ... In addition to the dry talk about what's going on today, look into the past. Some interesting early (realy early - vacuum tube times) people who set many stages for where we are today. Then there are those companies too - does anyone know anything about the original Sunnyvale Radio Companiy of the 20's - 30's? Lee DeForest in Palo Alto. Who was that first guy in SJ who played his phonogrqaph over a low powerer transmitter in his home - or was it his store? Everyone is fascinated with extrodinary people. It adds color. It's all part of silicon valley. Good luck and I'll be checking it out.

It's a great idea to look back as well as forward. So I'm going to add a section on "Mountain View Technology History" to this blog.
The only historical article I've written was on Shockley's lab (Web Link).
My husband is a trustee of the Computer History Museum (Web Link). I'll have to go rustling through their archives as they have lots of old videos and computer books.
