Impressing their friends ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first episode will cover the pioneering years in the mid-1970's. Bob Cringely will begin by providing the context that created the PC industry. He will introduce the audience to Silicon Valley where the PC revolution started, its spread to the Pacific North and over to the East Coast, and finally the world. This is a first look at the PC pioneers, a group of disenfranchised nerds who did not meet the macho standards of American maleness. They were a motley group of hobbyists/opportunists who saw a niche that needed to be filled. They had no idea how businesses were supposed to run, no sense of what was impossible, so they faked it, making their own way of doing business--ways that are institutionalized today but not generally documented or formally taught
