Es ist immer wieder schön und inspirierend zu sehen wie die Digitale Revolution begonnen hat, auch wenn wir immer schauen sollten das es nicht zu viel Technik in unserem Leben gibt, da wir als Menschen sich sehr leicht beeinflussen lassen und relativ schnell Suchtverhalten entwickeln, man muss sich nur die millionen Menschen auf den Strassen ansehen die tagtäglich die meiste
Zeit in Ihre Smartphones und daheim in Ihre Facbook+Youtube Seiten gucken und langsam das reale Sozialumfeld verschwindet.

"Fearless Genius" Is a Work of Genius 6. Juli 2014
Von David H. Kennerly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Three words sum up Doug Menuez’s latest book, “Fearless Genius.”

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!

Master photographer Elliot Erwitt asked the right question in his foreword, “How does one photograph genius?” He had the answer, “. . . call on Doug Menuez.”

Erwitt did not understate the case. Menuez’s remarkable opening photograph of a high-powered lunch held in the middle of an empty warehouse with Steve Jobs and H. Ross Perot signified the beginning of a vision, and recorded a ground zero moment that was the start of the Silicon Valley gold rush. Menuez’s overhead angle provided a unique perspective that made me feel like I was a bird on a wire observing real drama unfolding. The last shot in the book, an exact opposite from the first, is a bleak scene of office furniture for sale that illustrated the end of other dreams when the dot.com bubble burst. Throughout that crucial period from 1985 to 2000 Menuez, who had been granted incredible access by the titans of the nascent industry, was there to chronicle one of the most remarkable periods in U.S. business history.

As a photographer who has spent the better part of my career behind the scenes of history documenting political power players, I understand the degree of difficulty required to gain the trust and access to honestly and accurately portray real people making big decisions. But getting in the door doesn’t mean anything unless you know what to do with your camera, and Menuez is a fearless photo genius when it comes to taking pictures. I was simply blown away by what he achieved in his 15-year project. It is one for the centuries.

The beauty of this kind of photography is that it takes you to a world you would never see otherwise. I was reminded of a quote from Alice in Wonderland when I saw this book, “Begin at the beginning," the King said, very gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop.” Menuez didn’t stop until he finished his mission.

The exclusive and rare photos of Steve Jobs in action starting NeXT, his resurrection after being ousted from Apple, (he would return with a vengeance), are by themselves worth the price of the book. Menuez also documented the beginning of Adobe (Photoshop), and Intel and Sun. His sense of humor is also evident in a double-page spread titled, “Evolution of the Species.” It should be a poster.

Like any good Lewis Carroll tale or Shakespeare play, “Fearless Genius,” has a beginning, middle, and an end. Through the photos we see the rise of the digital era, the triumph of success, and the agony of failure. It is a real story, an important story, extraordinarily well told and shot by Doug Menuez.

Chronicler of an era 12. Juli 2014
Von Tammy A. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Bought at Doug's speaking engagement at the Computer History Museum which also held a large-print exhibition of selected photos from this book. Beautiful printing, compelling images, exceptional timing (especially for the bug-eyed reaction shot), a very fortunate man to have been granted such access. A wonderful chronicle of a time I witnessed almost in my back yard. My big takeaway from his talk was that many in today's high-tech are looking for a quick payday and don't have the same passion for shepherding their product for the long-term that those depicted did. Every generation stands on the shoulders of giants; these guys and gals knew and admired those who came before them (Moore and the rest of the Traitorous Eight, Packard, Hewlett, et al)…today's leaders would be wise to learn.

(Mostly) Great Photographs Capturing a Special Time, Place, and Intent 13. August 2014
Von David Kopec - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
A talented photographer is given unprecedented access to Silicon Valley's otherwise paranoid-about-secrecy young companies and this book is what ensues. Menuez tries to tell a cohesive story about a time and place that transcends any individual company, and he largely succeeds. However, I would argue that some of the artistic choices made were not particularly valuable. Out of the 250,000 photos he took, some of Menuez's choices for the book of about 250 seem bizarre. Sure, empty Chinese food take-out cartons tell a story, but a story worth printing full page?

None the less, this book is an enjoyable, quick read (about 2-3 hours of careful study), and some of the photographs of Steve Jobs in particular, are spectacular. I would not recommend this book as first introduction to the story of Silicon Valley, but it's certainly an excellent additive piece.

Gives visual insight into "how it all began." Very enjoyable book. 9. November 2014
Von Christian Boyce - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
More than 100 photographs documenting Silicon Valley's rise, all in black and white. Features many of the famous key players of the time, and also those whose contributions did not receive the attention they deserved. Steve Jobs is there, of course, (the beginning of the book is devoted to the creation and launch of the NeXT computer), as are Marc Andreesen, Steve Capps, Susan Kare, John Warnock, Clement Mok, Ross Perot, and even President Clinton. Far from "glamour shots," these photos capture non-posed reality, with all of the intensity, exhilaration, and exhaustion that was everyday life for those who sought to change the world. Menuez's captions, and especially his thoughtful assessment of the evolution of the industry, are valuable additions. I enjoyed this book very much.

Stare at it closely and it's easy to see that 7. November 2014
Von jorge l melega - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Once upon a time a book comes out which I must prominently display on my desk just to look that much smarter.

“Fearless Genius” is one of those books. It also inspires me to get out there, to follow one's dreams.

If there’s an image that captivates my imagination, it is "The Day Ross Perot gave Steve Jobs $20 Million", a photograph of a pitch lunch held in the middle of an abandoned warehouse with Steve Jobs, Ross Perot and the NeXT board of directors.

Stare at it closely and it's easy to see that, in a flash of genius, Doug Menuez captured not an empty warehouse but rather one filled with a trillion possibilities.
