What We're Reading: The Idea Factory

The history of technology, particularly in the last century, is heavily populated with iconic American tales.

Here, Jon Gertner tells the unmistakable story of Bell Labs, one of the most inspired and innovative centers for research and development in any period in American history.

As the Amazon review states: 

"From its beginnings in the 1920s until its demise in the 1980s, Bell Labs-officially, the research and development wing of AT&T-was the biggest, and arguably the best, laboratory for new ideas in the world. From the transistor to the laser, from digital communications to cellular telephony, it's hard to find an aspect of modern life that hasn't been touched by Bell Labs."
