About the Author

In Rogers words, More than most people, I've been there and done that. And while I was doing it, I was taking notes.

Roger is a careful observer of the human condition, technology, and history, and this is what he writes about. He was a soldier in Vietnam in the sixties, an engineering student at MIT in the seventies, and a personal-computer pioneer in the eighties. He has visited twenty countries and worked in five.

He paid his dues, but he paid them in interesting ways.

     He never drove big rigs, but he drove the creation of the PC-LAN industry by working for Novell as it created that industry.

     He was never a waiter, but he served people as a computer store owner.

     He never did time, but he did talk personally to J. Edgar Hoover.
