An independent documentary chronicling the history of tyranny around the world. Americans (much like all free societies turned dictatorship) have an undue and alarming trust for their government. Unfortunately, despite the noble efforts and intentions of America’s Founding Fathers, the American government is no more benign than Napoleon, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot, etc. Any observant student of history knows that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

How Stanford & the CIA/NSA Built the Valley We Know Today, presented by Steve Blank.

How much does an average Googler know about the history of the place he/she works in – Silicon Valley? Come and test your knowledge. I have seen this talk and I assure you – even seasoned Silicon Valley veterans will find this story interesting. Silicon Valley entrepreneur Steve Blank will talk about how World War II set the stage for the creation and explosive growth of Silicon Valley, and the role of Frederick Terman and Stanford in working with government agencies (including the CIA and the National Security Agency) to set up companies in this area that sparked the creation of hundreds of other enterprises.
