Hey guy.it is Lauren Goode is here, taking over for Steven Levy-I finally heard that he was looking for his next unpublished book while doing some highlights on Lake Tahoe. I write in the habitat of Silicon Valley, in the smoke of a devastating fire in Northern California. We are also in the worrying elections for the election of the governor, waiting to see what the reopening of schools means for this critical phase of the Covid-19 pandemic. what is that? Sorry-my editor told me that I should save the terrible content for the “end time” section of this newsletter. Don’t worry: Still, there must be someone in Silicon Valley who is building the next big technology company.
