Abstract

The area around Stanford University was later to be called Silicon Valley, the cradle of high tech start-up companies. But in 1967, when I first lived there, there were fruit orchards just a step away from El Camino Real (“The King’s Way”), the main old road from Stanford to San Jose. Leading IT industry companies like Apple, Sun Microsystems, Cisco, and Google did not even exist in this world. The headquarters and offices of these companies were built on these orchard lands and San Francisco Bay landfill.

Notes

  1. 1.

    When Dylan had made the leap from folk to rock a little while before this time, many people were shocked by his transformation and were unable to go along with it.

  2. 2.

    Ken Kesey authored One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest, a literary masterpiece on the inhumanity of American society symbolically set in a mental institution, and began living a tribal style of life. It is said that, at his commune, he was attempting to recreate the naturalism of Henry David Thoreau , who had lived a self-sustaining life at Walden Pond outside of Boston in the mid-nineteenth century.
