Assuming you're referring to "Where Wizards Stay Up Late" ...
You might check out xbbn.org - which redirects to
http://exbbn.weebly.com/ - lots of collected personal recollections from
the old days.
It links to a variety of things, including:
http://exbbn.weebly.com/a-culture-of-innovation.html - which is
essentially oral history, through 2010, that extends a lot of the stuff
in the book. There's an associated web site at
https://walden-family.com/bbn/ - Dave is basically our historian - and
https://walden-family.com/ has some more stuff of broader historic interest.
