TRIUMPH OF THE NERDS

REVIEW

"Bob Cringley hosts this terrific three-part video history of the computer industry. More than a pedestrian history of the industry, this compelling program contains animated segments, promotional clips, archival footage, and intriguingly honest interviews with wealthy industry nerds (Gates, Wozniak, Jobs, etc.). With computers such a pervasive presence in society, this fascinating set holds wide appeal even for computer illiterates." - Booklist

Features:

  • Closed Captioned

  • Instructor’s Guide

  • Series: $29.99

  • 3 programs on 1 DVD

  • Runtime: 150 minutes

PRODUCT INFORMATION It happened more or less by accident; the people who made it happen were amateurs; and for the most part they still are. From his own Silicon Valley garage, author Bob Cringely puts PC big shots and nerds on the spot, and tells their incredible true stories. Like the industry itself, the series is informative, funny and brash.

Programs:

  • IMPRESSING THEIR FRIENDS

  • RIDING THE BEAR

  • GREAT ARTISTS STEAL
