In this talk highlighting themes from his new book, Markoff tells the story of the how military funding of basic research, anti-war activism, and readily available psychedelic drugs converged on the mid-Peninsula in the 1960's to create a unique political and cultural environment that led to development of the personal computer. Markoff's talk will be followed by a panel discussion including Markoff and four of the key figures whose work Markoff has chronicled.
