In the early 1970s the personal computer was just a wild dream shared by a small group of computer enthusiasts in an area south of San Francisco now called Silicon Valley.

Working after-hours in basements and warehouses, computer pioneers Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak of Apple Computer, Bill Gates of Microsoft, Gary Kildall of Digital Research, and many others ignited a technological revolution of astounding magnitude.

This is the story of those individuals and the industry they founded. It reveals the visions they shared, the sacrifices they made, and the rewards they reaped.
