Here’s a fun conversation from Foo Camp between Dale Dougherty and Steven Levy on the 25th anniversary edition of his ground-breaking book Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution. This is one of those books that changed the direction of my life. How about you?

    I have the 1984 version sitting beside me and now I have the 25th anniversary edition. I love this book! I try to read it every other year or so… and I always recommend it quite often. I’ve enjoyed the story it tells since high school.

    If you’ve not read it, hunt down a copy – it’s a great and entertaining history of computing.
