We have titled this paper with an ode to a compilation album by a band that was founded in Palo Alto and developed a counter-culture. Though the title espouses a new state of mind, it is investment, not consumption driven, as this is 2017 and not 1965.
There is a book written by John Markoff entitled What the Dormouse Said, and those with a penchant for '60s music may recall this is a line from a Jefferson Airplane song based on Lewis Carroll’s classic book, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. For those not familiar with Markoff’s book, a primary point is that today's personal computer is largely a derivative of Stanford and its/the counter-culture. It was this counter-culture that revolutionized society in ways that no one then could dream of ex-ante, and are only obvious now, ex-post. In line with these themes, in our website, www.mov37.com, we include allusions to Carroll’s book through the titles of our “ALIS Through the Looking Glass” and “ALIS Down the Rabbit Hole” sections.
