Podcasts by Zartis – The History of Software #4: Hacker Culture in the 1970s

Episode 3 covered the birth of hacker culture in the 50s and 60s. Following up, in this episode we look at how the movement progressed in the 1970s. We explore what happened as the centre of gravity shifted to the West Coast, and specifically Northern California.


We look at the pioneering computer networks Arpanet and Darpanet and  their French counterpart  – Cyclades. The growth in popularity of Unix and C is another pivotal moment of the decade, which poured gasoline on the fire of innovation. And last but not least – we look at the early days of  Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs.
