COMPUTING HISTORY INITIATIVE
Thank you for agreeing to participate in the Penn State PILOT lab Computing History Initiative!
The purpose of this project is to document computing history through the eyes of early participants. PILOT lab hopes that your stories will help stimulate student interest in careers in computing, conveying important historical context for today's technology policy and legal challenges.
We also hope that this initiative will lead to the eventual launch of a Smithsonian Museum of Technology History - a dedicated national museum that introduces future generations of students to computing and its social implications.
Please acknowledge your consent to be recorded by filling out the form below, confirming your participation in our multimedia computing history documentation project. (This is a Penn State form, not one drafted by PILOT lab.)
