Saturday: Silicon Valley Roots & Shoots

 

"Silicon Valley Roots & Shoots," an insider's travel guide phone application to the companies, people and products of the area, is the topic of a talk by David Laws at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, at the Menlo Park City Council chambers, 701 Laurel St. in Menlo Park.

Mr. Laws, semiconductor curator of the Computer History Museum in Mountain View and a former Portola Valley resident, created the iPhone/iPad travel guide in 2010. It provides a guide to over 125 locations and resources in the southern San Francisco Bay Area, including the birthplaces of the computer chip, disk drive, video games and video recorder. Each location includes descriptions, maps and links to additional information.

The program, presented by the Menlo Park Library, is free and open to the public. There is free van service for Menlo Park seniors and people with disabilities. Call 330-2512 to schedule transportation.
