I’m launching the publicity for “How The ThinkPad Changed The World” on June 21 at a Silicon Dragon conference in New York City. Here’s the link for that event.
It’s been an amazing ride since the ThinkPad was introduced in 1992. Prior to that time, personal computers were so big that you had to use a stewardess-like pullcart to haul them around. They were called “luggables.” They had no batteries so they had to be plugged into the wall. They could not communicate wirelessly so they also had to be plugged in to the wall via modems. They were not in color. The ThinkPad helped change all that.
And now the ThinkPad is helping to invent the future. The revolution isn’t even close to being finished. Arimasa Naitoh, my co-author who is considered the father of the ThinkPad, describes in our final chapter how more waves of technology are about to wash over us.
If you haven’t bought a copy yet and/or not reviewed it on Amazon, here is that link to make it easy for you to find. A lot of people are going to find this a fascinating tale.
