Three things you need to know:

1. Silicon Valley used to be fruit orchards. That was, until Gordon Moore – realized that transistors get faster and cheaper every year. And the rest is iPhone and Facebook history.

2. Negotiating for higher pay doesn't mean having to put on the proverbial battle armor. Stanford's Margaret Ann Neale tells us what really works when you're trying to get your way.

3. We have the Six Million Dollar Man to thank for our advances in medicine. Steven Kotler, author of "Tomorrowland: Our Journey from Science Fiction to Science Fact," explains how books, movies and television have dreamed up advances in technology before anyone knew how to make them happen.
