Summary : What Just Happened: A Chronicle from the Information Frontier (Unabridged) [Unabridged Nonfiction]

As one of our leading science writers, James Gleick has always been ahead of the curve. He chronicled the genius of the great physicist Richard Feynman and explained chaos theory in a way all of us could understand. Now, in a collection of previously published pieces, he muses on the Internet revolution that has taken place all around us. From the foibles and ambitions of Microsoft, which he predicted would come to take over the world years before it became obvious to the rest of us, to the futuristic possibilities of mobile networked computing, Gleick gives us a gradual and inexorable account of the way computers have come to pervade our lives.
