Tracy Kidder's The Soul of a New Machine

  • Needs a location

  • From Amazon: Computers have changed since 1981, when Tracy Kidder memorably recorded the drama, comedy, and excitement of one companys efforts to bring a new microcomputer to market. What has not changed is the feverish pace of the high-tech industry, the go-for-broke approach to business that has caused so many computer companies to win big (or go belly up), and the cult of pursuing mind-bending technological innovations. The Soul of a New Machine is an essential chapter in the history of the machine that revolutionized the world in the twentieth century.

    I will be in Europe that week and miss the discussion. I have started reading the book and it was a good choice.

    Maybe it's too old to have current information, but not too old to be insightful. I don't know; I haven't read it yet. It was requested by a member and I figured it might be interesting. We will find out in December, no doubt.
