John Markoff s landmark book is about the culture and consciousness behind the first PCs the culture being counter and the consciousness expanded, sometimes chemically. It s a brilliant evocation of Stanford, California, in the 1960s and 70s, where a group of visionaries set out to turn computers into a means for freeing minds and information. In these pages one encounters Ken Kesey and the phone hacker Cap n Crunch, est and LSD, The Whole Earth Catalog and the Homebrew Computer Lab. What the Dormouse Said is a poignant, funny, and inspiring book by one of the smartest technology writers around."
