    Great interview! It’s refreshing to see smart people exploring psychedelics with an eye to improving our lot instead of the use that the cops think it has, which is (I guess) to escape reality.

    Technology is what happens when hippies and scientists and entrepreneurs meet.

    If you have not read the John Markoff book he’s talking about, well, it is probably one of the better books on Silicon Valley in recent years. Everyone comes here trying to discover why this part of the world innovates all the things it does, but no one ever talks about the history of drugs and how the 60s unfolded into the personal computer era. Just my two cents.

    I see original Mac engineer (signature printed inside on the plastic case) Burrell Smith nearly everyday in Palo Alto.  Today he was returning home from CVS with a large pack of toilet paper.  He and Steve had a bit of a disagreement several years ago.  Seems Burrell liked throwing rocks at Steve’s house.  I once tried talking to him but by now he’s non-communicative.
