On June 19th, 2019 we presented @ the Cupertino Historical Society & Museum (Cupertino, CA) our new exhibition "Homage to the Information Technology”, focusing on the history of the visionaries and entrepreneurs who, between 1975 and 1985, transformed a digital-technological revolution into the greatest cultural revolution of all time.
Here are a few pics taken during the exhibition’s preview. Thanks to all the people who supported the event and special thanks to the pioneers of the IT revolution who celebrated with us.
