A Human Atlas of Silicon Valley

De.Coded is an exploration of 101 remarkable change makers from Silicon Valley. This multi-media book was built on a year-long nomination process where a group of local grassroots leaders and activists nominated extraordinary individuals, from across all their networks and communities. Each featured nominee was chosen for their extraordinary contribution to the region and beyond. The final work honors the exceptional diversity of the valley and tells a deeper narrative about one of the most influential regions on earth. The project was curated by Cathy Kimball, and commissioned by the David & Lucile Packard Foundation with nomination & fiscal support provided by the American Leadership Forum (ALF).
