Blind kids, MIT students, bookies and Steve Jobs

Halfway through the book Exploding the Phone. Fantastic read. History of phones, “Ma Bell”, phone phreaks, and, indirectly how Apple got its start. Great history lesson, insights in to patents, anti-trust, silicon valley, counter-culture/hacking culture, system design, and timeless security issues. The author keynoted at Usenix Security this week.
