I’ve long been fascinated with the history of computing. I’ve read many books and watched what few movies/tv shows exist on the subject. It is for this reason that I found this week’s “This Week In Tech” so interesting. In honor of the 30th anniversary of Apple’s founding, it is an interview with several of the people who were there when it all began. Guests include Steve Wozniak, Andy Hertzfeld, Bill Fernandez, Daniel Kottke, and Randy Wigginton.
Along these same lines, there is an interview with Lee Felsenstein who ran the Homebrew Computer Club and creator of the Sol. I haven’t had a chance to listen to this one yet but it’s queued up on my Zen Nano right now.
If this subject interests you, see my Amazon List on the subject. It needs a little updating but includes most of the books I’ve found interesting.
