A History of Silicon Valley

Table of Contents | Editor | Correspondence

(Copyright © 2016 Piero Scaruffi)


Below is the list of books that we read (not necessarily every page of them) and that we recommend. However, the vast majority of the practical data for my chapters (e.g., dates and names) came from computer magazines of the era. Sometimes we had to track down the announcement of a new product to find out where and when a company was founded and by whom, or when a product was introduced.

As a side note to the bibliography, Wikipedia turned out to be the worst possible source. Most of its articles are simply press releases from public-relationship departments, with all the omissions that they deem appropriate for their business strategies. On the other hand, vintage magazines and even newspapers were an invaluable source of information and analysis. If websites like Wikipedia are going to replace the magazines and newspapers of the past, the loss to scholarship will be colossal: the most persistent marketing department (or a mob of fans) will decide what information will be available to our descendants.

Too many books written about Silicon Valley rely heavily on interviews with the "protagonists" (or presumed such). Having written several "history" books, my experience is that interviews with the protagonists are just about the worst kind of resource to asses what truly happened. The protagonists generally hold a biased view of the events, and sometimes just don't remember well (dates, places, names).
