Beyond The Little Blue Box
The biographical adventures of John T Draper (aka Captain Crunch). Notorious 'Phone Phreak', legendary internet pioneer and ardent privacy advocate.
John T Draper
C Wilson Fraser
Welcome to the world of John T. Draper, better known as Captain Crunch, an eccentric genius who went from being a penniless hacker to a millionaire and back again. Along the way, he developed some of the most significant tools of the computer revolution, but for every success, there have been setbacks and hurdles of literary proportion.
Featuring a foreword by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and cameos by the who’s who of early computing, this Kerouacian journey gives us an inside look
at the birth of modern computing through the eyes of one of its most influential pioneers.
Mr. Fraser is a painter, installation artist and graphic designer. He has been close friends with Mr Draper for over twenty years. They have enjoyed many adventures together, and have been business partners several times. Originally from the United Kingdom, he spent several years in the United States and currently lives with his family in southern Spain.
