American Experience: Silicon Valley

Here's a fantastic PBS documentary on Silicon Valley and its foundation, laid down by Robert Noyce.

Watch Silicon Valley on PBS. See more from American Experience.

In the 1950s, it was more or less a given that employees would stay with their company for the duration of their professional careers.
Noyce's (as well as seven others') departure from Shockley Semiconductor, their founding of Fairchild Semiconductor, and later Noyce's founding of Intel basically kickoff the startup culture in Silicon Valley and the rest of the United States tech industry.

Technology, innovation, corporate counter-culture.
Could there be a better story?
