The Sunnyvale and Saratoga Historical Societies are co-sponsoring an evening with author David Mariani.
July 26, 7:00pm on Zoom
David Mariani is a descendant of the orchard family who pioneered the development of quality dried fruit, in their own way being entrepreneurs in the Valley of Heart’s Delight before it came to be known as Silicon Valley. Mariani delivers a personal account of four generations of his family, living in the agrarian society of the early orchards and witnessing the arrival of technology that transformed the valley. He will talk about individuals such as Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, David Packard, and others who had a major influence on his own life. Growing up and spending most of his life in this valley, Mariani has seen three major technological revolutions: agriculture, information technology driven by the silicon chip, and the adoption of the World Wide Web.
