Monday Night Philosophy takes a local detour into the reasons for the phenomenal success of Silicon Valley’s innovative institutions. Imitated often, but never duplicated, and in spite of its spectacular ups and downs, Silicon Valley’s companies and entrepreneurs seem poised to continue to have an outsized worldwide impact on technological and cultural change in the decades to come. Why? Hear the opinions of a panel of experts who’ve lived the experience, and then ask them your own questions about what makes the Bay Area so suited to this particular kind of success.
