I’m having trouble with static pages in WordPress right now, so I’ll just do the “About” pages for the blog inline as posts.
About this blog
This blog is about the history of the software industry — its products, its people, its users, its companies, its triumphs, its failures, and everything else. That’s a huge subject, of course, so I’ll only be able to get to the barest fraction of it. Realistically, I suspect that many of the posts here will grow out of current-day issues I’m thinking about; indeed, I may blog elsewhere about present/future stuff, then add a link to a second historical note that I put here.
For more about what I intend to do with this blog, please see the post “30 years of software stories” right after this one.
