Overview:

Where Wizards Stay Up Late : Twenty-five years ago, it didn't exist. Today, twenty million people worldwide are surfing the Net. Where Wizards Stay up Late is the exciting story of the pioneers responsible for creating the most talked about, most influential, and most far-reaching communications breakthrough since the invention of the telephone. In the 1960s, when computers were regarded as mere giant calculators, J.C.R. Licklider at MIT saw them as the ultimate communications devices. With Defense Department funds, he and a band of visionary computer whizzes began work on a nationwide, interlocking network of computers. Taking readers behind the scenes, Where Wizards Stay Up Late captures the hard work, genius, and happy accident of their daring, stunningly successful venture.
