This Week in Computer History

This Week in Computer History


To your students, computers have ALWAYS existed. So it will come as a real eye-opener for them to learn of the powerful developments in computing that happened in one particular week in what they think of as 'ancient history.' Just a small part of The Computer Museum's excellent site, the page allows students to also see "Previous Week in History," "Next Week in History," "This Day in History," and "This Month in History." Many of us 'old-timers' will enjoy reviewing these annals of one the most significant technological developments the world has ever seen.
