Hard-wired History

leave a comment »

One of my dream writing projects, after finishing my novel Viral Times, is to pen a story of the HP 3000’s history, some 36 years and counting, a lifetime in the computer business. I’ve been on the scene for more than 23 of those years.

This week the juggernaut of Computerworld posted its Unsung innovators: 10 people who shaped the computer industry article. It’s the stuff which a good history relies upon as background, as well as turning points to compare against.

The article also includes a link to Seven Tech Titans of Today. For a writer who cut his teeth on community journalism, practiced in the fields of the Hewlett-Packard customer base, this is fun stuff. It makes it clear who the step-father of the Internet is, anyway.
