Video games, the personal computer, venture capital and even biotechnology were born in Silicon Valley during the 1970s and early 80s. Historian Leslie Berlin spent six years researching lesser-known figures of the era who were behind those landmark developments. Berlin joins us to discuss her new book, "Troublemakers: Silicon Valley's Coming of Age." Tell us: who do you think are the unsung heroes of Silicon Valley's early days?
