When I returned to the United States I brought with me the remains of my huge original archive: my 1962 call reports to Control Data, my flight logs, my appointment (and hotel/restaurant) lists, some of my expense account carbons.

What I have finally chosen to do is to slice it so as to feature wonderful people: some of them famous, like the great Vons - von Braun, von Karman, von Neumann; some of them tremendously significant but not so well known, like L. Comrie and Wallace Eckert; some of them just vivid and exciting, and important to me because they were wonderfully human if not historic.

I aspire to Magic Realism - a picture somewhat larger and much clearer than life.

Well, it looked like a lot of work, and not much fun for me or for the readers. Lewis Carroll is a favorite preceptor for just about everybody in the computer wonderland, and the thought of Watson Senior shouting "Off with her head!

" at every married IBM woman [1948] was very appealing. " as I grew into a manager - oh, the parallels were evocative.

I decided to continue the material more or less seamlessly, and to call the result a second edition of COMPUTER rather than a separate book. There are no pictures this time, although I have many more to display. Errors that I am aware of in the first edition have been corrected, although I am sure there are others, and not a few in the new material.

The table of contents and the chronology have been extended.

The Index (which applies only through Chapter 25) is fully linked, and page anchors have been added through the end of Chapter 25, and correspond to the printed pages of the first edition (which has 24 chapters and no index).

Page numbers appear inline, representing the beginning of the corresponding printed page, as to press.

I have not sharpened the joys and the sorrows; there was genuine gold and genuine guilt. The characters in my story are real, every one of them. As with all the others, wives and lovers and pets, friends and enemies and quizzical bystanders, I've drawn them as I remember them, with no fear and much, much favor.
