Tracing the History of the Computer - About this Website

 

The purpose of the ComputerNostalgia.net web site is to provide a repository of articles and photos relating to the history of computer hardware, software, games, operating systems, applications, companies, and people. The original idea of the site was that visitors could contribute their own articles and photos, but I have since abondoned this idea as people were contributing non-computer articles. If you have an article that you would like me to consider for this website, please feel free to send it to me.

The site was originally developed towards the end of 2005 to celebrate, for me, twenty years in the computer industry. We're looking at closer to 30 years now !
