[The Lock In Podcast]: Talking to the media in lockdown, featuring The Sunday Times’ Danny Fortson
How did Silicon Valley become Silicon Valley? From the genesis of the hippy movement to government military contracts, Stanford and beyond why did Silicon Valley in particular become the birthplace of Zuckerberg’s dream or nightmare factory? Who are the movers and shakers in AI, and why isn’t Siri better at her job?
