Robert Slater is a member of the reporting staff of the Time Jerusalem bureau.From Library Journal:
Slater, a Time correspondent based in Jerusalem, has written sketches of 34 key individuals in the electronics revolution. They range from Babbage and Turing to Richie and Thompson (UNIX), Jobs (Apple), and Knuth ( The Art of Computer Programming ). Many of these figures have been similarly dealt with elsewhere (e.g., David Richie's The Computer Pioneers, LJ 2/15/86). However, Slater does include a number of individuals overlooked by others: Jay Forrester of IBM, H. Ross Perot of EDS, and others. The sketches, well written and thoughtful, provide a good overview of the evolution and development of the computer field. Hilary Burton, Lawrence Livermore National Lab., Livermore, Cal.
