Book recommendation: George Gilder's "The Silicon Eye"
This is, imho, one of Gilder's better books. It builds on the topics he covered in his excellent 1990 book, Microcosm: The Quantum Revolution In Economics And Technology, continuing his biography of Carver Mead, Mead's students and colleagues, and the pioneering technologies Mead et al have created. As the title suggests, the book is focused on the future of digital imagers (along with related technologies and product categories). If you're interested in disruptive digital technology breakthroughs and their implications, and/or the research/discovery process, and/or start-up business dynamics, you should read both books.
