From TED: Ideas Worth Spreading, watch "Historian George Dyson [tell] stories from the birth of the modern computer -- from its 17th-century origins to the hilarious notebooks of some early computer engineers."
Each month, a new and unusual source of information about technology and its history will be offered. It is hoped that these examples will stimulate thinking about sources of information and approaches to studying and teaching the history of technology itself. Your comments and suggestions are welcome. Please email the SHOT Webmaster.
