Our civilization runs on software. Yet the art of creating it continues to be a dark mystery, even to the experts. To find out why it's so hard to bend computers to our will, Scott Rosenberg spent three years following a team of maverick software developers--led by Lotus 1-2-3 creator Mitch Kapor--designing a novel personal information manager meant to challenge market leader Microsoft Outlook.
