BELLHEADS PICK UP A SIGNAL FROM THE PAST

It was an evening of I-thought-I’d-see-you-heres as an overflow crowd of more than 100 attendees – a preponderance of them white-haired, and many once employed by Bell Labs – turned out in Little Silver Thursday night to hear author Jon Gertner discuss his book, “The Idea Factory: Bell Labs and the Great Age of American Innovation.”

The unexpectedly strong turnout necessitated the relocation of the event from the borough library to the nearby municipal courtroom, where it was still SRO. (Photos by Trish Russoniello. Click to enlarge)
