Worth reading!

Very good. Even years later this book is thought provoking. In addition, it gives a historical view of computing at beginning of the widespread use of the Internet.

An interesting story but about 150 pages too long for this non-computer guy. I am a proud owner of one of Stoll's Klein bottles.

USA, Californien, 1986
Clifford Stoll er astronom, men hans bevilling er tørret ud og han får i stedet arbejde som systemadministrator på Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. En dag i 1986 bemærker han at nogen laver numre med afdelingens VAX installation.
