Some would have you believe that our current tech
hellscape utopia emerged from the pure power of hacker culture, innovative entrepreneurship, and rugged ideation—or whatever the fuck they're all saying now. But Margaret O'Mara sets the record straight in The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America. She witnessed the birth of big tech from her perch in the Clinton White House, and she's here to remind us all that it was much rockier—and much more publicly funded—than our corporate overlords let on.
