People, Machines, and Politics of the Cyber Age Creation is an important book about an important aspect of the world. It is the story of the creation of the Cyber Age as we know it. ENIAC was the very first computer, first publicly demonstrated on February 14th of 1946. From its birth in the midst of the Second World War, the ENIAC ushered in the explosion in technology to what we call the Cyber Age – with about thirty percent and climbing of the world’s population instantly connected each day with the Internet and their cell phones; and the impact is accelerating. As the first machine ever invented that amplifies the work of the mind, this ‘wheel’ of the modern age has created immense wealth for many, and completely and dramatically changed the lives of all people and nations – with much more to come.
People, Machines, and Politics of the Cyber Age Creation is a heavily documented book, amplified with the personal knowledge and observations of the author, who knew and worked with the inventors of the Cyber Age. Dr. Martino’s first person knowledge, experiences, and reflections go beyond the historic facts in writing about the triumphs and tragedies, successes and failures, promises and perils, and visions of the creators of the Cyber Age.
This timely book begins with a knowledgeable survey of the impact of the computer in our lives and then goes on to portray the actual invention of the machine and the Cyber Age in the United States and around the world. A major feature of People, Machines, and Politics of the Cyber Age Creation is Dr. Martino’s recounting of the infringement trial of 1972, The Honeywell v. Sperry-Rand Court Battle, that misdirected the truth of what really happened.
Dr. Martino’s book includes consideration of the creation and growth of word processing, the Internet, cell phones, artificial intelligence, and personal computers. The book closes with a Crystal Ball look at the future. People, Machines, and Politics of the Cyber Age Creation is a must read for the student of human adventures of the mind and spirit, for those searching for the seeds of the future in the past, and for the downright curious as to what really happened to create this revolution through which we are all living.
