Gov. Brown set to speak at tech summit in Mountain View


Gov. Jerry Brown is set to join a discussion in Mountain View Monday afternoon with The Atlantic magazine's editor-in-chief James Bennet about the future of innovation.

Brown and Bennet will have a conversation about "The Next Generation California Dream" at 1 p.m. Dec. 16 to conclude The Atlantic's Silicon Valley Summit, which began at 8:30 a.m. Monday at the Computer History Museum, Brown spokesman Andrew Santana said.

The event, titled "Silicon Valley Summit: Listening to the Innovators," included top executives from technology firms such as Microsoft, eBay, Tumblr, Coursera and Khan Academy, and Jennifer Pahlka, the deputy chief technology officer of the U.S., according to The Atlantic's website.

The summit wraps up at 1:30 p.m.

Politicians and mainstream media drop into Mountain View, make some speeches, get photo-ops; I wonder if they will ever also get any actual insight about silicon valley or technical innovation. The record is unencouraging.

At least we have the comfort of knowing that one particular Northeastern magazine (The Atlantic) will probably not mistakenly locate silicon valley in "southern California," as another such magazine once did.
