I remember seeing <Triumph of the Nerds>, a history of the people involved
with personal computers since the 1970s, such as Gates, Jobs, etc., from
someplace like PBS Home Video, or Wellspring Media, or the Video Preview
Collection of the National Fulfillment Center in Santa Monica, CA. However,
in checking the current catalogs, I couldn't find this title listed. I
think it sold for something like $79 for a 3 tape series. I did see it on
TV, and thought it was very good. Hope this gives you some leads!
