The public can't get into PARC. Steve Jobs did and took what he learned and built the Macintosh.
Here I take you on a tour of the Innovation Exhibit there thanks to Google Glass.
Oh, and who showed me around? Mike Kuniavsky, cofounder of Adaptive Path, among other companies.
Damn I love visiting PARC. (Where ethernet, laser printing, object oriented programming, and what eventually became the Macintosh was invented).
What are they doing now? Contextual computing. Printable circuitry. Better batteries, and more.
Here's my first report, about printable circuitry. More coming all week long. Whenever you get inside PARC your head buzzes for a week.
Innovation isn't dead and neither is Silicon Valley.
Big day tomorrow. Gonna visit PARC.
That's where Steve Jobs visited, saw the future, and got many of the ideas for the original Macintosh.
The first piece of Ethernet is still in the wall in the copy room there.
It never regained the position it had back in the early 1980s but it still is one of the most important R&D labs in the world.
Wonder what I'll see? I will shoot lots of stuff with Google Glass.
Later in the week we head to Sydney, Australia to hang out with startups there.
In the middle of the week I'll be speaking at the PR Summit and am doing a ton of interviews.
Oh, and I hear a new phone will arrive this week too (I have already seen it and it is a game changer).
Big week ahead!
