Don't forget that there's a second edition of Fire In The
Valley, which was published in the last couple of years. I
lent my first edition to someone, and lost touch with them.
I now have a second edition, which includes a chapter on
the Web and the "browser wars", as well as some mention of
newer companies such as Sun Microsystems.

And I found a copy of "Hackers" at a charity shop (thrift
store) just a few weeks ago.

BTW, thanks for sorting out the "neon bulbs" issue. Seems
I was right to doubt the text there!
