The Computer Museum Presents the Official Computer Bowl Trivia Book
The Computer Bowl, an annual, nationally televised contest of computer smarts between teams of industry leaders (Bill Gates and Mitch Kapor have been among the competitors), has become one of the major events of the year for millions of computer fans. The Official Computer Bowl Trivia Book challenges readers with questions asked in the first six Computer Bowls, along with hundreds of additional questions that weren't used on the air. They range from the lighthearted (What did computer pioneer Alan Turing bury in his backyard during World War II, and why?) to the tough-techie (How long would it take to send the Encyclopaedia Britannica over a 2-gigabit fiber-optic cable?), and are grouped in a such categories as "Computers in the Media", "Fun and Games", and "People in Computing".
