A volatile prodigy who puts her future in jeopardy by dropping out of college to join MacMillan's rogue PC project, Cameron is a shock to the system of conservative, old-guard Cardiff Electric. At 22 years old, she represents what is next in the world of computing and a slap in the face to the traditionally male-dominated 1980s tech industry. The product of a tumultuous childhood, she finds connection and comfort in the mathematical certainty of coding but at the same time tends to create chaos everywhere she goes. She sleeps at the office, takes stuff from others desks, blasts punk music — she’s no one’s idea of a great co-worker. She sleeps with her boss, Joe MacMillan, while she butts heads with the pragmatic engineer Gordon Clark. Cameron is a wild card — she’s an idealist who sees the potential of a great personal computer, but she’s a mess who might undermine her company’s ability to build one.
