Lunduke's History of Computers - Volume 1
A downloadable game
This is not your normal history book.
We will not be going, chronologically, through the history of one topic or another. Instead, we will be looking at key aspects of computer history that -- all too often -- get glossed over.
Or, worse, forgotten entirely.
Remember the 1985 Online services for Atari computers? Or the early writings of Vannevar Bush which set the stage for all of the early graphical user interfaces? How about the time the guys that made VisiCalc (the early spreadsheet software) released a complete graphical environment... years before Apple or Microsoft?
If you happen to not know about some of those seminal events in Computing History... that's not surprising. Most computer enthusiasts who did not live through those periods simply never got the chance to learn about these critical moments (and the legendary people behind them). Heck, very few working Technology Journalists know about many of the topics in this book (and even fewer write about them).
Now is the time to rectify that.
I truly hope you enjoy the journey you are about to embark upon. It is my wish that, once you finish reading the pages that follow, you will have a deeper understanding of the rich, fascinating history of computing.
Or, at the very least, that you enjoy the pretty pictures.
Length: 200 Pages
