The Silicon Valley Revolution - How a Few Nerds did Change the World

Today, the Silicon Valley is home to billion-dollar IT companies. But the beginnings were amateurish, colorful, chaotic and revolutionary. Hippies, hobbyists and businessmen once initiated an unprecedented revolution. The pioneers of the home computer wanted to change no less than the world and push "Big Brother" off the throne. What they wanted: computers for everyone. In this documentation of filmmaker Jan Tenhaven, the aged pioneers of the computer revolution recount the beginnings of the home computer in exclusive interviews. They are visionaries and innovators who - other than Bill Gates or Steve Jobs - didn´t make the big money. But without their ideals and dreams, our today´s networked world would be unimaginable.
