RESPONSE #1: Index Created for Atlas Shrugged (sketch version)

Ayn Rand’s Objectivist “philosophy”  has heavily influenced business culture in California’s Silicon Valley. The belief in a computer enabled utopia, known as Californian Ideology, promotes that digital/computer networks could measure, control and stabilize societies, without hierarchical political control, and that people could become “Randian heroes”.

The documentary cites the popularity of names from Atlas Shrugged for Silicon Valley company names and the children of computer entrepreneurs.
