It is the biography of tens of thousands - named and unnamed, famous and obscure - whose efforts and identities are merged in the record and character of a company unique in American industrial history. In 1802, Eleuthere Irenee du Pont de Nemours, refugee from a French dictatorship, established near Wilmington, Delaware, a factory for the manufacture of gunpowder. THe latter was more than a necessity in the United States of 1802. It was a means to life and to the national growth..Today, the du Pont name is attached to thousands of chemical products, many ow which are wholly new to man or nature, and which collectively are effecting a revolution more significant to mankind and its future than any ever promoted by drums and gunpowder. From such common materials as coal, water, air, limestone, salt, vegetable oils, cotton and wood, the Du Pont laboratories are synthesizing the building blocks of a new industrial age.." x + 403 pages with index.

In January 1975, Popular Electronics magazine published a cover story on the Altair, an odd metal box with switches and blinking lights that proved to be the progenitor of today's personal computer. Inspired by possibilities that the leaders of the electronics and mainframe computer industries couldn't see, unlikely entrepreneurs -- hippies, dropouts, phone phreaks, and electronics hobbyists -- seized the opportunity... This updated edition features interviews with the major players, new chapters, dozens of new photos, and updates throughout, that carry the story forward into the Internet era... (from the rear cover)

NOTE that this is the later expanded edition published in 2000, which is about 3 times the thickness of the original edition

Includes, The voyage to Altair, miracle makers, Homebrew, software factor, retailing the revolution, big companies, and MORE mb9
