Only a few decades ago, computers filled entire rooms, and consumed enough electricity to power over 100 households. The Digital Equipment Corporation transformed the entire industry, making computers smaller, less expensive and more accessible. DEC's founder, Ken Olsen, led the revolution, and in the process developed innovations that became the basic principles of the Information Age. Olsen led DEC on a meteoric rise as one of the nation's largest and most successful corporations. Just as precipitously, DEC became a casualty of the industry and expectations that they had helped to create. Digital Man, Digital World presents the history of the Digital Equipment Corporation, and its lasting impact on American culture.
