The Secret History of Silicon Valley

The origin of Silicon Valley and the modern IT industry in the "Defence Industry"



Quite a good talk divided into six stories, starting with Electronic warfare during the Second World War.

Came across this photograph in a box of 'old stuff' I recently started to sort out and was struck by some similarities.

Surely there are some more news reels / footage out there of british leaving eg Spike Islands etc
It was indeed Commdt McKeown..interestingly enough in William Sheehans book Hearts and Mines which details the activities of 5th Division British Army whose area of operations included Leitrim,Westmeath etc, quoting from the Divisional Report written in 1923, the part played by Commdt McKeown in preventing the massacre of survivors and wounded British soldiers after the ambush of their convoy in Ballinlee Co Longford on 2nd February 1922 is well acknowledged and went a long way in preventing Commdt McKeown being executed after he was tried for the assasination(the Report states murder) of a District Inspector of the RIC.

Came across a documentary called "Déantús an Phoitín", second video goes through the process of traditional Poitín making.

If I am correct, he was the man Collins tried to rescue from Mountjoy Prison, when Earnie O'Malley escaped during the Tan War. Paddy Moran of Roscommon (the Forgotten 10) could have escaped but foolishly stayed for his trial, being sure that he would be acquitted.

McKeown also was a bit of a deal breaker for Collins during the Treaty Negotiations too.

Just as well Tom Barry never got caught so.
