Triumph of the Nerds

 Home > Browse Our Collection > Software > Miscellaneous > Triumph of the Nerds

A triple VHS box set.

An irreverent, witty, and original history of the personal computer history and its creators based on the best-selling book Accidental Empires.

It happened more or less by accident; the people who made it happen were amateurs; and for the most part they still are. From his own Silicon Valley garage, author Bob Cringely puts PC bigshots and nerds on the spot, and tells their incredible true stories. Like the industry itself, the series is informative, funny and brash.

Features Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Ed Roberts, Jean Richardson and Larry Ellison.

A co-production of Oregon Public Broadcasting and John Gau Productions for PBS and Channel 4 n association with RM Associates and Pacific Mountain Network. Licensed worldwide by RM Associates.
