Geeky + bccs,
I just finished reading “The Innovators” by Walter Isaacson: http://www.amazon.com/dp/147670869X/. You might know the author from his biographies of Albert Einstein and/or Steve Jobbs. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it, particularly for anybody with any interest in technology, especially computer and communication technologies.
Much of the book focuses on teams that complimented each other. Just to share one anecdote that surprised me – all the earliest programmers were women. It seems this “tradition” started because all the early “calculators” were women – seemingly a low prestige profession.
