What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
"Rich in persuasive detail, Ceruzzi's Internet Alley is a lively narrative and eye-opening account that tells the unheralded story of a rival to Silicon Valley."Tom Hughes , author of Human-Built World

"This is a visionary look at Tysons Corner as the driving force of the nation's technological economy. Paul Ceruzzi has taken a story of regional history and woven it with the history of internet development, creating a unique and compelling read that reveals the little-understood symbiosis between government and private enterprise in the realm of computers."Michael R. Williams , Professor Emeritus, Department of Computer Science,University of Calgary

David Mindell
An exemplar of how the history of technology can help us understand our own cities, this book not only adds critical new information regarding such prominent but enigmatic corporations as SAIC and the Carlyle Group (not to mention AOL and NRA), but also unites the strains of 'regionalism' and 'federalism' in the history of technology.
