This memoir tells the personal
story of a nerd who managed to be in the right place at the right time
when the computer industry was in its infancy. The author was one of thousands
of bobbleheads who didn’t just watch but also participated in the Great
Computer Revolution, getting inventive on their expense reports along the way.
Therefore, the book is also a
historical novel, a retelling of the story of the personal computer revolution
from the inside, with some of the people who made it happen seen not as
icons but as a loose network of guys and girls who played together, pulled
tricks on one another, ate and drank together, and for the most part had an
incredible amount of fun along the way.
Nerd Story is a comedic story,
mostly giving attention to the "unique" people and events that the author had
contact with over the decades, with an occasional nod to the touching stories or
peeks at corporate quirks that make such a life and career fully three
will laugh at the collisions of cultures as the Revolution
spread around the world.
