Zeroes and Ones: The geeks, heroes and hackers who changed history

Zeroes and Ones

Coming August 2018.

They spied and they stole.

They hatched ideas and built prototypes.

They were arrested, went broke, ate pizza and dreamed big.

And their achievements radically changed the way we live.

This book is about the creators of today’s digital technologies. It’s about the coders, the crackpots and the trailblazers.

It’s about their failure and despair, their dedication and daring.

But most of all, it’s about what ordinary people can do with some creativity, determination, and a whole bunch of zeros and ones.

People like you.
