The Devouring Fungus

Tales of the Computer Age

Karla Jennings (Author)


“Zooks! At last, the culture, folklore, and mythology of computing. Here’s the digital dirt from our computer age…collected and retold by Karla Jennings.” —Cliff Stoll, author of The Cuckoo’s Egg

Are you someone who’d use a RAM chip as fertilizer? Do you think that the best way to boot up a computer is with a steel toe? Then The Devouring Fungus is the book for you. Anyone who’s ever had anything to do with computers—from the sophisticated hacker to the confused office worker to the unsuspecting parent who finally relented to the kid’s demand for a PC—will find something here to chuckle about.
