According to Po Bronson, Silicon Valley poses two problems to any pottential chronicle. "1. There is very little there, there. 2. What is is shrouded in secrecy." Independent report seem to verify Bronson disclaimer: Some bus tours of Computer Country consist mainly of cameria-laden vacationers gawking hopelessly at well-guarded industrial parks. Somehow, our wired-covered boy/reporter managed to breach the security of this virtual world. His portraits of would be software moguls and lean and mean youths plotting quick IPOs and exits catch the nervous thrust of internet gold rushers, the anxiety of enrepenuers who know that a good java code is no substitute for luck. Bronson is a fine writer and, witness, Bombardiers, a capable novelist. But this tale of greed and idealism and rampant technology may be his best book yet.
