In this month's BayCHI meeting, two wildly different time periods collide. In the first half of the program Professor Daniel Rosenberg will focus on the emergence of the timeline as a common graphic tool. Rosenberg examines the origins of measured, linear representations of history, their alternatives, and their implications for historical thinking, as well as the power of graphic devices in the representation of information more generally. In the second half, the Swiss Silicon Valley Association will speak to innovation in Silicon Valley over the last two decades, spanning from the Stanford Linear Accelerator (SLAC) to the height of the Internet bubble to the Valley's new focus on design.

What: Cartographies of Time and Innovation in Silicon Valley
When: Tuesday, May 10th at 7pm
Where: George E. Pake Auditorium, PARC, 3333 Coyote Hill Road, Palo Alto, CA
