In Search of the Valley
In Search of the Valley tells the story of three friends' personal journey into the psyche of Silicon Valley, when in September of 2004 they swapped London for California, spending one month visiting and talking to many of the valley's heavyweights and biggest personalities.
Directed by Steve O'Hear, and produced by Fleeta Siegel, the resulting film is a unique interpretation of Silicon Valley - a social fabric that has produced some of the most remarkable technological advances of the 20th Century, and spawned an infectious dichotomy of counterculture and entrepreneurship.

It also gave me an insight into many of the aspects I have heard about yet not seen (the HP garage, Bucks restaurant where Netscape and others were founded, the computer museum, burning man) - next time i hear people talking of these online i'll now have a picture in my head.
There was also a lot about the history and innovation of Silicon Valley - this is where i wish there was more. I could really see this video being the first in a series, each subsequently looking at a specific area whether art, tech or culture. There is just so much to delve into.
Most importantly, I'd recommend anyone starting a technology company (like myself) to watch this video - many of the people speaking in this video created our industry and listening to just a few minutes of each serves as amazing inspiration for us all!
