HP in the Groove with Celebs

HP gets lots of kudos for how it works with celebrities to help connect new technology with our personal lifestyles.  We like to look good, carry small and live large.  And we have to have what we want when we want it…that means a device mainlined to the Internet.

This is a cool HP party video.  See if you can spot the Intel inside.

Silicon Valley History — People Doing Things That Change The World

 Even if you’ve read about it, seen photos or event stopped to visit, seeing the HP founders’ garage is inspiring. It’ an icon of for that spark of imagination and innovative spirit that still spreads through the arteries of Silicone Valley.

Watching this made me think how cool it is to have a legacy.  For HP it goes back a while.  They skyrocketed to greatness and managed through tough twists and turns to become one of today’s leading computer companies.

Even short-run start-ups have legacies in Silicon Valley.  While many seem to disappear, their efforts actually are the growth seeds, ideas and drive that drives the innovation collective.   And sure it’s the great breakthroughs and computer applications that blow the mind, but it’s the people, characters past and present, who are the core of the best stories about Silicon Valley.

This is a nicely produced visual story (kudos!) about people and technology inside HP.  The second video is another nicely produced video that looks at a major change to the tiny, ever shrinking transistor — arguable the real engine of possibilities we all think of when we hear two words:  Silicon Valley.
