The story behind the things you take for granted
on 22 August 1999
I seem to take for granted too many of the items, companies and personalities that come out of Silicon Valley. This book is a fascinating history of the whole computer age, spending time focusing on Apple, Netscape, Larry Ellison, and the VC (venture capital) game. The author does seem to focus on the big mistakes that some of the companies have made and how they reacted.
