Description

At a time when Steve Jobs was only a teenager and Mark Zuckerberg wasn't even born, a group of visionary engineers and designers--some of them only high school students--in the late 1960s and 1970s created a computer system called PLATO, which was light-years ahead in experimenting with how people would learn, engage, communicate, and play through connected computers. The Friendly Orange Glow: The Untold Story of the Plato System and the Dawn of Cyberculture is the first history to recount in fascinating detail the remarkable accomplishments and inspiring personal stories of the PLATO community.
