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 taught41ocn221430017visu19910.10Give sharks a chanceAfter a series of shark attacks on the Gold Coast, Ron and Valerie Taylor try to curb an outbreak of hysteria, and take a group of people, including two shark attack victims, to confront the object of their fear - face to face31ocn040641662visu19980.27Plane crazyBob Cringely, computer industry gossip columnist, trades in his silicon chips for spruce, fiberglass and glue as he attempts to design, build and fly a plane in 30 days21ocn703179683book20100.47Triumph of the nerds : Documentary Film, Robert X.
