Description
 
Katie Hefner (au); Matthew Lyon (au). A few decades ago, it didnít exist. Today, hundreds of millions of people worldwide are surfing the Net. This is the exciting story of the pioneers responsible for creating the most influential & 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 Dept. funds, a band of visionary computer whizzes he inspired began work on a nationwide, interlocking network of computers. Taking readers behind the scenes, this book captures the hard work, genius, & happy accidents of their daring, stunningly successful venture. Black & white photos.
