READ & DOWNLOAD ñ The Innovators: How a Group of Inventors, Hackers, Geniuses and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution Following his blockbuster biography of Steve Jobs Walter Isaacson’s New York Times bestselling and critically acclaimed The Innovators is a “riveting propulsive and at times deeply moving” The Atlantic story of the people who created the computer and the InternetWhat were the talents that allowed certain inventors and entrepreneurs to turn their visionary ideas into disruptive realities What led to their creative leaps Why did some succeed and others. I feel bad that I joked about this book in my review of Ninth House and made it seem like a boring read all about how transistors are made It seemed funny at the time but it was entirely misleading This book was not boring at all In fact I would say some chapters were difficult to put downThe Innovators is NOT a comprehensive history of all computer and Internet related technology I feel the need to stress that now It takes a very specific route from Charles Babbage to Google by way of Turing Hopper and Berners Lee a route which is about showing the major players in America s journey to the Digital Age It is very easy to read it and think Wait What about so and so and whatshername and Ohmygod it s all about freaking America It s limited is what I m trying to say and Isaacson is pretty open about that from the beginning He knows he d need a good 10000 pages to come close to adeuately portraying this history in full so he s stuck with a few big namesWhat he sacrifices in breadth he makes up for in depth which is personally how I like my books to be This was a fascinating book about several fascinating people some of them not fascinating in a good way Though it also sent me down a number of Internet rabbit holes it has to be said I felt compelled to look something up and then would end up neck deep within mathematical theoryI find the story of how we got from a Victorian polymath to the current ever expanding technologies of today deeply fascinating I love how the author shows how it was such a collaborative effort It is actually impossible to truly pin down who invented the computer or the Internet because it all relied on so many different people s inventions and ideas I loved reading about all the different influences rural tinkerers taking machines apart America s nuclear program anti establishment hippies and Ada LovelaceSay what you will but Ada Lovelace is a fascinating person Whether you give her or less of the credit for inventing computer programming she was clearly a genius and a kinda odd individual But it s just a real good story isn t it That one of the two earliest computer visionaries and programmers was a woman called Lady Lovelace the daughter of none other than Lord Byron How delightful I definitely think sometimes the amount of time allotted to certain people had to do with whether Isaacson could getread an interview with them than to how important they actually were It is odd to me that Atanasoff who never got his machine to work was given than three times as much page time as Konrad Zuse who built the world s first programmable computer It also reads a little strange when Isaacson skims over the Manchester Baby the world s first electronic stored program computerBut I m nitpicking I really enjoyed reading The Innovators and learning about all these incredible people I was especially glad that Isaacson gave the female programmers the attention they deserved Many people don t know this but almost all of the first computer programmers were women because men didn t realise the importance of software and despite working hard on machines like the ENIAC they were still excluded from men only celebratory

READ & DOWNLOAD ñ The Innovators: How a Group of Inventors, Hackers, Geniuses and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution Fail The Innovators is a masterly saga of collaborative genius destined to be the standard history of the digital revolution and an indispensable guide to how innovation really happens Isaacson begins the adventure with Ada Lovelace Lord Byron’s daughter who pioneered computer programming in the 1840s He explores the fascinating personalities that created our current digital revolution such as Vannevar Bush Alan Turing John von Neumann JCR Licklider Dou. The basic premise of this book is that innovators and inventors do not create new concepts solo They are almost always collaborators But there is not a surplus of collaboration described in this book This was a fun entertaining book to read In the beginning of the book the innovators were described in detail in historical order But as the chronology approached the present day less and less space was devoted to individual innovators and to the innovations I really enjoyed an earlier book by Isaacson Benjamin Franklin An American Life In that book I really was able to understand the man and his accomplishments However this book covers too much ground and ends up being less than satisfying I ended up understanding the life of the first personality covered in the book Ada Lovelace but not much else Perhaps if the author had not tried to cover every single person he considers to be an innovator and to go into depth about the most interesting biographies it might have been better Diary of an SM Romance fascinating personalities that created our current digital revolution such as Vannevar Bush Alan Turing John von Neumann JCR Licklider Dou.
