Paul Edward's query about books on the history of personal computers was
bouncing around in the back of my mind for a while, until I went to my
files & found my notes on a very interesting book:

"Blue Magic: the People, Power and Politics Behind the IBM Personal
Authors: James Chposky & Ted Leonsis. New York: Facts on File 1988.
Yes, the same Ted Leonsis who now owns the Washington Capitals hockey
team, which made a run for the Stanley Cup and is by far the hottest
professional team in DC. Leonsis is easily one of the most popular
people in DC right now, and for a good reason.

If only the owners of the Washington Redskins, Wizards, and Nationals
could write about computer history...
