La Puce et les Geants April 6, 2008

I bought this book in 1983.

My IT diploma was obtained, I wasn’t programming anymore in Basic, Cobol, Fortran or other Pascal. Was turning into a more financial path, to maximize my future professional life potential…

This book was fascinating. It was explaining a coming revolution combining information and quickness. The first chapter is about Silicon Valley, the others about IBM, Japan, Russia.

The book is about the end of (sort of) an industrial era.

The summary on the back is mentioning the term “a new economy” still so used now and that means so much waste.

Back to the first chapter, this story about San Francisco, Silicon Vally meant nothing to me, I didn’t know the place…

I wrote many things on the book when writer mentioned Frederick Terman.Frederick Terman

Terman is considered as the man who has thought the concept of Silicon Valley…and create it with many others… He introduced Dave Packard to Bill Hewlett, creating their new venture in 1939 with 480$.

He described a capitalist person as a someone crossing situations, and someone who has the choice.

“You have the choice, never have any doubt”.

Now I have something to work on. For my 3rd trip to San Francisco in less than 6 months. Do I had any choice up to now? Not sure. Never having any doubt: that’s a standard for me.

But this does not makes me a capitalist. For sure!

Philippe Nieuwbourg has organised a very interesting show on the top of La Grande Arche at La Defense in Paris…
Philippe is a top IT specialist, I know him since I work on IT on 1990 (remember Forum EIS at le CNIT…)…
I started to be familiar with data processing as I was preparing since 1981 my Baccalaureat H…IT oriented diploma…one of precursors on that topic 🙂

There are many machines and a full path to follow starting from the first mecanographic machine…with different concept developped (mobile computer…storage…mouse) and some Apple presence of course…until more recent…


I could use so many space on this blog to mention everything I saw there…really interesting…see my photographs on my FlickR…I will return anway, and best thing to do if you’re in Paris is to go to visit!

 Philippe Nieuwbourg

To last until October 2nd 2007. Web site here in French.

The thing I really loved to is the conclusion: “in data processing as very in th elife it’s necessary to remian modest.

Really not the feeling I have when I see things occuring now with Web 2.0, media fascination (some of them but mostly in fact), and serial entrepreneurs…some of them are good and in adequation with this concept…but not all of them! And I strongly believe it”s key, whatever the ego you need to create some business in France for example!!!
