5.0 out of 5 stars MOST EXCELLENT FOR NON-WONKS, Aug. 1 2003
This review is from: Where Wizards Stay Up Late: The Origins of the Internet (School & Library Binding)
Lots of information is conveyed with excellent editing making this book a very fast read. But AT&T's 6-year opposition to distributed processing is as appropriately treated -- without comment -- as the telegram sent by Senator Edward Kennedy's office to Boston-based BBN Corportation when the latter landed ARPA's contract for the Interface Message Processor: "Congratulations on your contract to build the Interfaith Message Processor."
This book's a beauty.
