Silicon Valley Summit
Monday, December 16, 2013
Computer History Museum, Hahn Auditorium, Second Floor
1401 N Shoreline Blvd
Mountain View, CA 94043
On Monday, December 16, The Atlantic will draw together cutting edge technologists and digital futurists for its inaugural Silicon Valley Summit.
As innovators build out the infrastructure of a new digital world and venture firms scour the Valley hoping to plant stakes in the next, next big thing, they face hurdles of imagination and presumption. What bets will turn out to be right ones? Which creations will reinvent the way we think about technology? And, from across the country, how can legislators support the march of technological innovation and achievement? Silicon Valley’s cauldron of obsessive creation is changing the world, giving its innovators an increasingly strong voice in national and global affairs.
