did not like it
bookshelves: 2010-mt-bookpile, old-reads
Read on April 04, 2010

Perhaps I would have liked this had I been the target audience (which I'm guessing is 10-12-years-old, if that). As it was, I got irritated when programs like DARPA were briefly touched on (but not named), when Netscape, FTP, Yahoo, Archie and Gopher were completely left out, and when the discussion meandered. The timeline and the ancillary materials are vastly superior and will definitely help any young student doing research into the birth of the computer age; the text, not so much.
