High-Tech Walk of Fame
Hollywood has its Walk of Fame honoring show-biz celebrities but what does Silicon Valley have that says, “Take a look at our technology gurus?” Nothing–yet. San Jose Mayor Ron Gonzales has proposed spending $50,000 for a Walk that would showcase the people who began it all. Names like Hewlett-Packard, John Doerr, Larry Ellison, Jim Clark, Stanford professor Fred Terman, known as the “Father of Silicon Valley,” and Jobs and Woz. The Tech Walk would fit nicely downtown San Jose around the Caesar Chavez Park. I don’t know if the names should be placed on a star or on some other symbol.
