Product Overview

Everything has a beginning. None was more profound?and quite as unexpected?than Information Technology. Here for the first time is the untold story of how our new age came to be and the bright boys who made it happen. What began on the bare floor of an old laundry building eventually grew to rival in size the Manhattan Project. The unexpected consequence of that journey was huge---what we now know as Information Technology.

For sixty years the bright boys have been totally anonymous while their achievements have become a way of life for all of us. ?Bright Boys? brings them home. By 1950 they?d built the world?s first real-time computer. Three years later they one-upped themselves when they switched on the world?s first digital network. In 1953 their work was met with incredulity and completely overlooked. By 1968 their work was gospel. Today, it?s the way of the world. Special Foreword by Jay W. Forrester Includes notes by chapter, bibliography, index, and portfolio of archival photography.

Tom Green talks about his book in a recent video available on YouTube.
