Springer, 1997 - Computers - 225 pages
The computer industry is young and still changing fast. The 'information revolution' has already made a major impact on our lives, perhaps comparable with that of the industrial revolution, but the fast and furious pace of developments has left little time for reflection or for looking back on what has happened. Why did the industry develop the way it did? What were the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the people involved? Who got it right and - equally interesting - who got it spectacularly wrong? Remembering the Future provides a fascinating insight into the growth of the computer industry during the past few years, through a series of in-depth interviews with the very people responsible for building it.
