West Coast, Best Coast

Book release roundup, week two

· The Code,Speaking

Got back on that jet plane to Seattle, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley for the second week of The Code's summer tour. By popular demand, here are highlights of events and media:

Silicon Valley Can Still Beat China: and it can do so by learning from its history. My piece in Bloomberg Opinion.

An inside look at Silicon Valley's rich history and the early days of tech: a "Margaret-to-Margaret" conversation with Margaret Larson on KING 5's New Day Northwest..

Talking The Code: chatted about the book with Bill Radke on KUOW's The Record.

Book talk at University Book Store: a full house on a midsummer Monday in the U District, wow! The event was recorded by KUOW; Seattle people, listen for it on the radio sometime soon.

How Green was the Valley: a great review in The Wall Street Journal by someone who really knows his tech history, Randall Stross. Honored and delighted.

Big Tech faces antitrust questions on Capitol Hill: it was a big week for tech companies, too, and I talked about history and implications with Meghan McCarty Carino on Marketplace.

The Code at CHM: back to the heart of Silicon Valley at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. A fantastic evening before a capacity crowd talking The Code and the long DC-Valley relationship with two terrific colleagues and friends: John Markoff and Tom Kalil. Thanks for the great conversation!

Book talk at Book Passage in SF: I got to talk about the book on a gorgeously sunny day at one of my favorite places in one of my favorite cities--San Francisco's Ferry Building. For WORK! Lucky me.

Capped up this wonderful week two with an enchanted evening book party thrown by dear friends, which among other things involved the West Coast entry into the book-cover-themed baked-goods contest. Cookies or cake? Can't decide--I'll take both!
