Another Great Online Resource

CP Car on the Great Dome

Apologies for my recent radio silence, and thanks to Marie for picking up the slack.  I still don't have anything terribly profound to say, but I wanted to point out a wonderful on-line historical resource that went up a couple of months ago: MIT's 150th anniversary interviews, dubbed Infinite History. The dozens of interviews at the site, with important figures in MIT's academic history,  include both a video and a synchronized transcript.   Interviews in the collection relevant to the history of computing include Leo Beranek, Noam Chomsky, Robert Fano, Jay Forrester (2 parts), Barbara Liskov, Marvin Minsky, and Nicholas Negroponte.  These are meaty interviews, most of them clock in at about two hours.  Enjoy!
