Summary
"At the dawn of the Information Age in 1963, a computer salesman in Texas saw an opportunity where IBM, his former employer, saw only dusty oil camps. This young entrepreneur, who had grown up dirt-poor in rural Louisiana during the Great Depression, staked his young family's livelihood on the notion that computers would help out local businesses - and quite possibly, revolutionize the way America did business."

Thinking beyond Tallulah -- Taking that hill for Big Blue -- There's a pony in there somewhere -- Never let your wallet tell you what you can do -- Talent goes where the action is -- An accidental bonanza -- If you can't join 'em, lick 'em -- Learn, baby, learn! -- Mining your own business -- Exploit the chaos -- How Jonah swallowed the whale -- When all around you are losing their heads -- Let a thousand super-entrepreneurs bloom -- The sweet spot at last -- The $8 billion harvest -- Investing the time to invest wisely -- We're doing this for Ray -- The dirty politics of clean energy -- We need a cat
