Your Own Photo Tour
Would you like have your own photo tour? That's entirely possible. Just send me the photos you want to see, and I'll show you how to create and edit your own tour. It should be a geek's tour, though.

The proverbial garage of "two guys in a garage" does exist. The original HP Garage can still be found at 367 Addison Avenue in Palo Alto. It is the place where Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard started Hewlett Packard.

In the front yard of the house with the HP garage is a plaque, the Birthplace Plaque, declaring this garage the birthplace of Silicon Valley.
