I’m geeking out, but not on gadgets.
A movie about one of Silicon Valley’s most iconic figures opens today. Although I read his biography, I’m surprisingly not that interested in seeing the movie. I am, however, very interested in writing about the house he grew up in because it had a significant influence on his preference for minimalism and clean aesthetics.
