Found Object: Collective Struggles


Stories of love among the revolutionary caste don’t crop up too often—they’re supposed to be too busy thinking about more pressing issues. A letter found in 1975 by Steve Weyl in “a charismatic radical’s” hiding space underneath a Palo Alto cottage, however, shows that revolutionary fervor can sometimes get confused with—and eclipsed by—more quotidian matters of the heart.

Steve Weyl is a serial technology entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. He previously held executive management positions at Apple, IBM, the ASK Group, and Ricoh Company, Ltd. He attended Stanford University, during which he discovered this issue’s Found Object (“Collective Struggles”). He later received an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.
