Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Jacqueline B. Concepcion BSIT-II / Block 5 Reaction Paper on ?Pirates of Silicon Valley? After watching the Pirates of Silicon Valley, I have learned lot of things. The movie was entertaining and interesting because it is about the history of computers and information technology itself, which I am pursuing for a career.

A person should also be careful on whom he should trust because he will never know who would stub him in the back. Two is always better than one, behind the success of a person is another person, a person will never be successful without other people, so we should always be humble and kind towards others, because if we don?t they might back stubbed us. ...read more.
