The history of our times is the history of the computer. Starting with the "personal computer" in 1981, and progressing into the digitalizing of modern media, the computer is the core of progress and societal growth. Despite the starts and stops of the Dot.Com bubble, the magnificent "number crunching" machine has produced marvels from mapping the genome to social networking. The real life characters that have influenced this modern evolution are well known: Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg come to mind. Allen Dowling is a fictional character who personifies the intelligence and drive of an internet entrepreneur. In the era where the computer is now in most homes, the laptop and tablet computers vie for the attention of a younger generation raised on the mini-computer that is the cell phone. After two major commercial internet successes, Allen Dowling was called into the world of politics, first to assist in the re-election campaign of the President and then to salvage the rollout of the President's signature legislation on healthcare. From there the restless entrepreneur set out to create a series of upscale restaurants: The Gary-Allen Eateries. This book describes the journey into the world of Food Service. It is another step forward for a society now enmeshed in the genius of the computer!show more
