Triumph of the Nerds: The Rise of Accidental Empires(History)

The thought of living without a personal digital device, for some of us today, is difficult to comprehend. Yet who can really remember how it got to be this way? The history of personal computing is only 30 years old, but it's only in the last 15 that the digital universe has really begun to take over our lives. "Triumph of the Nerds" is one of those films you watch and say "oh, is that what happened?". It's history, but a history that most of us have been living through, without even knowing it.
