Starting to read Broad Band, history of women in computing.

Intro is author talking about her Dell, had DOS through Win95, installed things with floppies, the scream of her modem as she logged onto the early web.

Was wondering what movies, shows, books, etc, take place in that time?

Had finished the show Halt and Catch Fire not too long ago, that gets into that era. Also read the comic Incredible Doom, waiting for their next season or whatever the next installment is called.

Any other works around that time? Feeling nostalgic for some of that.

@RadicalEdward I mean, the big popular ones addressing a lot of that era are War Games, The Net, and Hackers; but I'd also love to know about others

@RadicalEdward I suppose also Tron, though that might be pushing it

@calcifer War Games and Tron a little earlier than what I'm looking for.

Hackers is in there tho. Haven't seen The Net, so will check out! Thanks!

@RadicalEdward If you need it, let me know. DC's pretty much forgotten all about it so I spent a good twenty-two years finding every issue.
