About the Hey Tech! Blog

Uploaded: Sep 16, 2008
The Mountain View Voice is starting a technology blog under Town Square. Here I can write more frequently than once a month.

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.
