This blog is written by Prof. L. Felipe Perrone, the current Robert L. Rooke Chair in the Historical and Societal Context of Engineering.
In the course of the next five years, I will use this site to post my thoughts and discoveries on the past, the present, and the future of computing technologies. My aim is to bring to discussion anything that relates to the history of the development of computing technologies and to the impact they have had on society.
Please visit often and feel free to contribute to the discussion and to point out anything that you think I should take a look at. Hints on technologies, books, articles, movies, TV shows, really anything and everything related to the societal impact of computing is welcome.
I hope you enjoy this blog!
