Summary
At the dawn of the Information Age in 1963, a computer salesman in Texas saw an opportunity where IBM, his former employer, saw only dusty oil camps. This young entrepreneur, who had grown up dirt-poor in rural Louisiana during the Great Depression, staked his young family's livelihood on the notion that computers would help out local businesses - and quite possibly, revolutionize the way America did business
