Part 16: Final thoughts; Impact of Silicon Valley

Asked how people would one day view the innovation that emerged from Silicon Valley, Jobs says: "I do think when people look back on this in 100 years, they're going to see this as a remarkable time in history

"Time frame's an interesting thing when you think about people looking back. I do think when people look back on this in a hundred years, they're going to see this as a remarkable time in history. And especially this area, believe it or not.

"When you think of the innovation that's come out of this area, Silicon Valley and the whole San Francisco-Berkeley Bay Area, you've got the invention of the integrated circuit, the invention of the microprocessor, the invention of semiconductor memory, the invention of the modern hard disk drive, the invention of the modern floppy disk drive, the invention of the personal computer, invention of genetic engineering, the invention of object-oriented technology, the invention of graphical user interfaces at PARC, followed by Apple, the invention of networking. All that happened in this Bay Area. It's incredible."
