A Human Silicon Chip

Nishi Chawla (Author)
Synopsis A Human Silicon Chip tries to capture the philosophical underside of the information revolution even as it traces the boom and bust of the dot corm era. This is not a defining portrait of a young man caught in the gold rush of the silicon valley boom years. There is no conscious portrayal of the physical or mental characteristics of any single entrepreneur who contributed to this boom. The aim of the writer is to evoke the philosophical underpinnings of the whirlwind that arose in the decade of the nineties in the silicon valley. The excitement involved with accomplishing anything, the visceral power of human cupidity, and the distant rumble of sibling rivalry, is all that this story is about. There is no further metamessage.
