When Computing Got Personal: A history of the desktop computer (Matt Publishing)
Thursday, 13 March 2014

How a handful of geeks and mavericks dragged the computer out of corporate back rooms and laboratories and into our living rooms and offices.

Here you will find some of the most intelligent and eccentric people you could hope to meet.
