Welcome to my Computer History blog. Well the obvious question to ask is... why a blog on the history of computing? Computing has changed the world so markably over the last few decades (and the rate of change is increasing) so i thought it would be a good idea to record where we have come from before we move onto where we're going. Plus i have degrees in software engineering and history so it seems a good idea... and it is something to do.
Key areas the blog will cover (because i find them most interesting more than anything else) will be mainframes, Apple and 1980s application software. Though others will also appear too. There will be no logical (ironically) pattern to what i blog about. It will purely be what is interesting to me, hopefully to you too.
