• “Puts a gloriously human face on the history of computing in the U.S. . . . extraordinarily comprehensive . . . a must-read for anyone interested in how a one-horse town birthed a revolution that has shifted the course of modern civilization.”--Publishers Weekly, starred review of The Code




    I'm a historian of modern America who writes and teaches about the history of the technology industry, American politics, and the connections between the two. My latest book is The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America, out in July 2019.
