2. Silicon Valley Dreams

"Highly Recommended. Viewers have the opportunity to see first-person accounts of the comings and goings of entrepreneur/guru Steve Krisch (Infoseek), Max Levchin (PayPal), Thierry Levy (QuizStudio.com), and Munjal Shah (Andale.com). Each displays his unique command of computer technology and it's environs." -Library Journal
A rare chance to see what's going on behind the scenes in Palo Alto, Mountain View and San Jose in the Silicon Valley, California. Here we see how young, bright, industrious and competitive computer gurus get it done in this modern day promised land. Their objective is the creation of universally used technologies that present an interesting commercial twist. We meet Mark Levchin, the founder of Paypal, a company dealing with the security of Internet payments; also Steve Kirsch, who developed the search engine, Infoseek, and today can afford to allocate a yearly $75 million to charities.
