Triumph of the Nerds

Seeing the anniversary note of Apple Macintosh brought to mind a wonderful documentary, Triumph of the Nerds, I saw years ago on the creation of the personal home computer.  Very well done, capturing the idiosyncrasies of these computer and software pioneers and developers.  It is also available on DVD.

There was also a good book written back in the the mid 90s, Microserfs, by Douglas Coupland, that gave a witty inside view of Microsoft and the attempt of a few of these computer geeks to branch off on their own.
