They are back. You know the nerd pack from “Silicon Valley’s“ Pied Piper consisting of Richard Hendriks, Bertram Gilfoyle, Dinesh Chugtai Ehrlich Bachman and others. After a successful first season, HBO’s “Silicon Valley“ premiers its second season today. Sadly, Christopher Evan, who plays the socially awkward Venture Capitalist Peter Gregory in the series passed away. He will be missed.
Ever wonder how they get the tech part right in the TV series? They have a technical consultant who helps them get all the technical details right, including all those scribblings on the board. Meet Dr. Vinith Misra, who was a doctoral student at Stanford University, when he got an opportunity to work with the creators of “Silicon Valley.” In a way this is Dr. Misra’s dream come true since it marries his love for technology with drama and films. A few months ago I interviewed him about his technical consultant role in “Silicon Valley.” Check out the interview.
