Decade 1 — The 1960sOn October 29, 1969 the first online message was sent, between computers at UCLA and the Stanford Research Institute, using ARPANET — which would eventually morph into the Internet we know today.A second attempt at sending “login” was made — this time successfully, infamously cementing “LOL” as the first three characters ever sent online, combining the “lo” from the first failed message and the “l” from the start of the successful second message.In the 1968 publication “The Computer as a Communication Device,” Internet pioneers Joseph Carl Robnett Licklider (1915–1990) and Robert W. Taylor (1932–2017) wrote:“We believe that we are entering a technological age in which we will be able to interact with the richness of living information-not merely in the passive way that we have become accustomed to using books and libraries, but as active participants in an ongoing process, bringing something to it through our interaction with it, and not simply receiving something from it by our connection to it.” (Kurzweil Library)The Web and the rise of social media revolutionized and globalized the type of ongoing online interactions Licklider and Taylor predicted more than 50 years ago, and they also went on to change the face and future of marketing.
While this push goes back to David Packard, one of the founders of HP, it’s evolved over the years.The latest changes – made with the help of Ingrid Sinclair, the charismatic president of SIMS Metal Management – have made it even more impressive.[ Get certified as an Apple Technical Coordinator with this seven-part online course from PluralSight. ]Sustainability is critical to the future of the human race and no one firm can make a significant enough difference.Efforts that don’t drive industry support won’t have the impact needed to assure this planet is still habitable next century.And as Millennials replace Boomers as the power generation, what they say is increasingly driving purchase decisions – which is why most every company has sustainability effort.
As one national government was funding elite research institutes and enlisting its country’s top scientific minds to develop military technology, it likely had little inkling the move would form the basis of a broader, civilian technology industry in the coming decades.The force behind this state-led initiative – a style of innovation commonly associated with China – was the US government, which seeded California’s Silicon Valley with funding for military research at Stanford University.It was there that the dean of engineering, Frederick Terman, actively encouraged students to launch companies to exploit these technologies for profit – the most famous of his disciples being Hewlett-Packard founders Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard.“Most people who came here after the 1980s just assumed it’s all silicon and chips,” said Steve Blank, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and adjunct professor at Stanford.“But innovation in Silicon Valley actually started in Stanford University, thanks to a single professor who changed the entire culture.”After the Second World War, Terman, whose background was in electrical engineering, drew upon his wartime experience heading a radio research lab at Harvard University to help turn Stanford into a top-tier university specializing in electronic warfare and with government contracts.
We fully expect to see Google release its first mid-range efforts in its Google Pixel line sometime soon.Allegedly, the devices will be sold as the Google Pixel 3a and Google Pixel 3a XL.The releases of these two new phones could be imminent, as Hiroshi Lockheimer — a senior vice president at Google — claims to be carrying an unreleased phone with him.It’s possible this unnamed device could be one of the Google Pixel 3a phones.Lockheimer referenced the unreleased phone in a tweet.He claims to have used the phone to snap pictures of Bill Hewlett’s and Dave Packard’s original offices which are preserved in their original 1960s decor.
It’s been 80 years since Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard founded HP, a company that would go on to become one of the leading pioneers in the world of personal computing.Hewlett-Packard was at the forefront of the computer revolution, and remains a household name when it comes to laptops, desktop computers, printers, and other PC peripherals for the home and office.To celebrate the company’s 80 years in existence, HP is running a huge sales event on a wide lineup of computers and hardware: Starting on Sunday, March 31, the HP Days sale lets you enjoy discounts of as much as $760 on everything from 2-in-1 laptops to gaming machines.You can also to enter to win a free HP Spectre Folio laptop with an exclusive giveaway.Hewlett-Packard built its name, fame, and reputation on computers, and the biggest highlights of the HP Days sale are some of its great laptops: The budget-friendly HP Notebook 15 is on sale for $170 off, letting you score it for a cheap $350 – a nice choice for those looking for a no-frills Windows 10 machine for work or casual use.The HP Days sale will see two of the Envy laptops drop in price: The 13-inch HP Envy x360 13z touchscreen laptop is marked down to as low as $600, saving you as much as $160, while the 15-inch HP Envy x360 15t is available for $1,070 after a nice $250 discount.
This is why CISOs are almost always fired or “resign” after major data breaches.When shareholders and customers demand blood following a breach, the CISO is the sacrificial lamb, even if there is no realistic way the CISO could have prevented the breach under the operating circumstances (which could include insufficient budget, headcount, and business visibility).This is often a self-defeating act, since the CISO is usually the most qualified person to manage post breach forensics, cleanup, and compliance audits.According to an IDC survey, at the end of 2017 two-thirds of Global 2000 CEOs had digital transformation at the center of their corporate strategy.There are several factors driving this phenomenon, including:Many organizations have not established a consolidated point of responsibility for governance, risk, and compliance, so cybersecurity operates in its own silo, with business executives often blissfully unaware of potential cyber risks until something goes wrong (aka, a data breach).
Usually, printers print and modify the text you read and write on your computer according to your demand of size, color, text, and font.HP Printers segregate into two major categories, which are 2D and 3D printers, further offering you to purchase black and white HP Printer or Color HP Printer.The machines were produced as laser printers for companies, offices and have been recently introduced for domestic purposes – known by HP Printers for Home, Home Office, Small and Large Businesses.HP Printers and HP support assistant can provide you with colorful photos, creative projects, or crisper text, even from your Smartphone or tablet.With HP Printer’s high-capacity performance, you can print up to 8000 color and/or 6000 black and white pages using the HP Printers.HP Printers allow you to easily refill your system and get borderless, fade-resistant photos and documents.
Iconic tech-company founders often come in pairs: Bill Hewlett and David Packard.Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.Sergey Brin and Larry Page.The world lost half of one such duo Monday when Paul Allen, who co-founded Microsoft with his childhood friend Bill Gates, died from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.He funded the first successful privately financed spacecraft launch and the development of the world's largest aircraft.Allen finally came up with something feasible that December after reading about one of the first commercially available personal computers, the Altair 8800, in Popular Science.
Until recently, investors in Silicon Valley were obsessed with finding founders who have a great sense of purpose and a vision for a product or service.So early-stage investors spend all their time looking for great founders and helping them build a company behind their instincts and leadership.The most formidable companies have accreted tremendous resources and power and are responsible for making profound decisions that affect whole industries and billions of people.Just like the origins of cryptocurrency were in deep dissatisfaction with hyper-scaled banks, initial coin offerings are in response in part to the lack of transparency and misalignment of interests between companies and consumers.A key component of blockchain is that it allows two entities (or people) to exchange value without a central authority (like a stock exchange or bank) executing the transaction.It might instead include a promise to deliver a service or product, which is similar to the way fundraising campaigns work on Kickstarter.
We are sitting in a conference room in Palo Alto, at HP’s headquarters, and we are going for a ride in zero gravity.HP is the reason you think of “inventing things in a garage” when you think about Silicon Valley, because that’s where William Hewlett and David Packard founded HP.(Steve Jobs was of the opinion that a healthy HP was good for the entire Valley, a Bloomberg story notes, probably for this reason.)It is, perhaps, the quintessential startup, one that went on to produce calculators, printers, and supplies for data centers.The startup had, it seemed, reached middle age.Getting around the problem of gravity is an engineer’s shot at sci-fi glory.
Some 100 boxes of correspondence, speeches, and other documents created by William Hewlett and David Packard as they built the company considered to be the grandfather of what we think of as Silicon Valley were burned to ash by the recent Sonoma County fires.The Santa Rosa Press Democrat, which first reported the destruction on 29 October, indicated that this collection had been valued at $2 million in 2005, part of a total archive worth $3.3 million at the time.Karen Lewis, the archivist who first assembled the collections in the mid-2000s, told the Press Democrat that it had been irresponsible to put the archives in a building without proper protection.Charles H. House, former HP corporate engineering director and now a trustee for the Computer History Museum, was part of the team that initially hired Lewis in the mid-80s to preserve HP’s history.House recalls that he and Raymond Price, the coauthors of the book, The HP Phenomenon: Innovation and Business Transformation, tried multiple times to see the full archives in the late ‘90s and mid-2000s, but were only given limited access to collections held in the company’s Palo Alto and Santa Clara facilities.The chain of events that led to such an important collection as HP’s to land in a portable building in Sonoma County involved the multiple splits and spinoffs that shattered the once monolithic company.
2017 has been a brutal year in California, where a series of wildfires have burned through hundreds of thousands of acres of land and left dozens dead or missing.The deadly Tubbs fire in northern California, which is estimated to have burned roughly 5,300 buildings across 36,807 acres and killed at least 22 people, also took out irreplaceable documents which traced the rise of massive PC manufacturer Hewlett-Packard (now two separate companies) and the early years of Silicon Valley earlier this month.According to the Press Democrat, the wildfire blazed a trail through the Fountaingrove headquarters of Keysight Technologies, a spinoff of HP spinoff Agilent Technologies, and burned down a modular structure where the personal and business papers of late HP co-founders William Hewlett and David Packard were stored.Appraisers had estimated the documents were worth up to $2 million (£1.5 million) in 2005; former HP staff archivist Karen Lewis told the paper that the archives had previously been kept in special, flame retardant-lined vaults.“This could easily have been prevented, and it’s a huge loss,” Lewis said, adding the documents should have been stored at a public institution.This is the history of the electronics industry.”

Founders' correspondence and documents weren't yet digitisedOne of Silicon Valley's most important historic archives, that of the Hewlett-Packard company, was destroyed in this month's Santa Rosa wildfires in California.The Santa Rosa Press Democrat blames the loss of the archives on a decision to remove them from vaults that used to house them.The paper archives, which hadn't yet been digitised, included more than 100 boxes of correspondence and speeches between William Hewlett and David Packard.They were in the care of Keysight Technologies, which was spun out of HP spinoff Agilent.Hewlett-Packard was founded in 1939, a year after its founders started working on audio test equipment in the now-famous Palo Alto garage.
An irreplaceable archive of documents from William Hewlett and David Packard, co-founders of a little company called Hewlett Packard, have been confirmed destroyed in a wildfire which has ripped through California' Santa Rosa.Founded in 1938 by William Hewlett and David Packard with little more than a garage and a joint $538 in savings, Hewlett Packard is one of the world's largest technology companies.While split in twain in 2015 with HP Inc. taking on the consumer market and Hewlett Packard Enterprise the business sector, HP sits in second place just short of Chinese technology giant Lenovo for number of PC units shipped as of 2016 and controls over a third of the global printer market.Key documents from its founders have been destroyed, however, in a wildfire which hit California's Santa Rosa.The Press Democrat reports on the complete destruction of an archive containing over 100 boxes of 'writings, correspondence, speeches, and other items' from the two technologists, valued in 2005 at almost $2 million and stored in a pair of temporary modular buildings - moved, according to former HP archivist Karen Lewis, from special fireproof vaults inside a permanent structure which could have protected them from the fire.The archives had been formerly under HP control, but in 2014 HP spin-off Keysight Technologies acquired the documents from fellow HP alumnus Agilent Technologies, resulting in the move away from the dedicated storage facility.
An anonymous reader quotes the Press Democrat: When deadly flames incinerated hundreds of homes in Santa Rosa's Fountaingrove neighborhood earlier this month, they also destroyed irreplaceable papers and correspondence held nearby and once belonging to the founders of Silicon Valley's first technology company, Hewlett-Packard.The Tubbs fire consumed the collected archives of William Hewlett and David Packard, the tech pioneers who in 1938 formed an electronics company in a Palo Alto garage with $538 in cash.More than 100 boxes of the two men's writings, correspondence, speeches and other items were contained in one of two modular buildings that burned to the ground at the Fountaingrove headquarters of Keysight Technologies.Keysight, the world's largest electronics measurement company, traces its roots to HP and acquired the archives in 2014 when its business was split from Agilent Technologies -- itself an HP spinoff.The Hewlett and Packard collections had been appraised in 2005 at nearly $2 million and were part of a wider company archive valued at $3.3 million.However, those acquainted with the archives and the pioneering company's impact on the technology world said the losses can't be represented by a dollar figure... Karen Lewis, the former HP staff archivist who first assembled the collections, called it irresponsible to put them in a building without proper protection.
Magdalena R. Osburn, a Northwestern University geobiologist who studies ancient and modern microbes, has been awarded a 2017 Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.The prestigious fellowship includes an unrestricted research grant of $875,000 over five years to pursue innovative and experimental research.The foundation named Osburn and 17 others as the nation's most innovative, early-career scientists and engineers.These young professors are tackling some of the critical scientific questions of our time and promise to have a big impact not just on their fields but also on the students working with them.Using a class of molecules called lipids, Osburn studies how microbes interact with their environments and what chemical signatures they produce.Osburn's work has led her to a number of extreme environments, including hot springs, mines, caves and lakes in Greenland.
"Marketing is too important to be left to the marketing department."– David Packard, co-founder, Hewlett-PackardIf you ask 20 business leaders to define marketing, you’ll probably get 20 different answers.Legendary Silicon Valley venture capitalist and former Intel executive Bill Davidow said, "Marketing must invent complete products and drive them to commanding positions in defensible market segments."Steve Jobs, another brilliant marketer, dropped out of school.Not an MBA in the bunch.
The area's transformation happened gradually, over a period of more than 100 years.Silicon Valley is an almost $3 trillion neighborhood thanks to companies like Apple, Google, and Tesla.In the late 1800s, San Francisco's port helped make it a hub of the early telegraph and radio industries.In 1939, the Ames Research Center was founded in the area, and it became home to the world's largest wind tunnel in 1949.Also in 1939, William Hewlett and Dave Packard founded Hewlett-Packard in Palo Alto, which originally made oscilloscopes.Then, during World War II, HP made radar and artillery technology.
