Product description

About the Author

MICHAEL STUTZ coined the phrase "net generation" while working as a reporter for Wired News—and in the early 1990s kicked off the Wikipedia era by being the first to take "open source" beyond software. He lives in Space Age Central, the former home of the NASA rocket scientist who planned the Apollo Project.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lyrical and Evocative 26 Aug. 2012
By David Waldron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first two volumes of Circuits of the Wind capture what it was like to come of age during the early days of the information age. The author deals with universal themes related to the passage to adulthood, but does so in the unique context of the birth of the internet. He exposes the ironies associated with loneliness and alienation at the dawn of the era of universal connectedness. The author's writing is evocative and he displays real insights into the human condition. A number of the scenes he paints remind me of the work of Hesse.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have not finished it, yet. 15 Mar. 2013
By Larjane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an interesting walk through a boy's journey to manhood and computerdom. I had a different experience but never even tried to hack. When computers first came out, I remember a hacker was someone who could not type and "hacked" at the keyboard. Whatever, it is a good story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Much, Too Wordy 5 Oct. 2012
By DaveReadsALot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I abandoned this book after 30% (82 pages). It is very difficult to read due to the long winded sentences, overuse of adjectives, and simply too many words to describe something that would take just a few. I knew it was time to try something else when I reached a paragraph that ran almost 2 pages (on my Kindle with a small font!).

The story is intriguing because I've lived through the chemistry sets, early radios, and because I too had an early Atari computer. But, I couldn't muscle my way through the prose.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring 22 May 2014
By theweed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Not much of a story, here, unless you're into the biography thing, because that's pretty much what it is. And not a very good one, at that. It reads too much like a documentary. Too much description, too little dialog, which is not very well done. Too contrived and not in form with the ages of the characters. A good story captures you with emotion and at least some semblance of humor or rebellion. There is none of that here. The author can write well enough, but the story is flat. I gave up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worse than bad 19 Jan. 2013
By William King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Without a doubt, one of the worst books I've ever attempted to read. Early on, one sentence ran on for 1 1/2 pages, with lots of commas and semicolons. After reading the sentence over and over, I gave up and deleted the book.
