The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America / Margaret O'Mara

Long before Margaret O'Mara became one of our most consequential historians of the American-led digital revolution, she worked in the White House of Bill Clinton and Al Gore in the earliest days of the commercial Internet. There she saw first-hand how deeply intertwined Silicon Valley was with the federal government, and always had been, and how shallow the common understanding of the secrets of the Valley's success actually was. Now, after almost five years of pioneering research, O'Mara has produced the definitive history of Silicon Valley for our time, the story of mavericks and visionaries, but also of powerful institutions creating the framework for innovation, from the Pentagon to Stanford University. It is also a story of a community that started off remarkably homogeneous and elitist and stayed that way, and whose belief in its own mythology has deepened into a collective hubris that has led to astonishing triumphs as well as devastating second-order effects.?

In July 1776 a pair of Franciscan friars, Francisco Atanasio Dom?nguez and Silvestre V?lez de Escalante, were charged by the governor of New Mexico with discovering a route across the unknown Southwest to the new Spanish colony in California. They had other goals as well, some of them secret: converting the indigenous natives along the way to the true faith, discovering a semi-mythical paradise known as Teguay?, hunting for sources of gold and silver, and paving the way for Spanish settlements from Santa Fe to Monterey.?

Maybe she is twelve, maybe fifteen, or somewhere in between. She doesn't appear on any missing person's file, or match the DNA of any murder victim.
