Moira Gunn speaks with John Hennessy, Professor, Stanford University and David Patterson, Professor, U.C. Berkeley on their new book, "Computer Organization & Design: The Hardware/Software Interface." Labelled as tremendous "rivals" by the New York Times, these friends have paired up again to write a book which describes the "insides" of computers. Cleverly written to enable the reader to use the book to an appropriate level, both novices and computer professionals can learn about what makes computers work.
Moira also speaks with Esther Dyson. Described by Wired Magazine as possibly the most powerful woman in computing, her exclusive RELease 1.0 newsletter is coveted by CEO's and high-level computer professionals. A limited group of subscribers get to attend her annual conference. Dyson shares her new insights into the technology business of Eastern Europe and the future of American technology in the next decade.
