There are many sites on the Internet devoted to the history of computing from 1623 (Wilhelm Schickard and his "Calculating Clock ), 1834 (Charles Babbage and his Analytical Engine") and onto modern times with the micrcocomputer, wireless computing and the Internet developed out of various forms of digital computing machinery
The Charles Babbage Institute of Computer History (CBI) is a research center at the University of Minnesota dedicated to promoting the study and preservation of the history of computing and information processing through historical research and archival activity.
"The computer, as we now understand the word, was very much an evolutionary development rather than a simple invention. This article traces the sequence of the most important steps in that development, and in the earlier development of digital calculators without programmability. It may help you to decide for yourself whether you think the first computer was the ABC, the V3 (aka Z3), the ENIAC, the SSEC, the Manchester Mark I, the EDSAC, or perhaps yet another machine -- and how to apportion the honor of invention among John Atanasoff, Charles Babbage, Presper Eckert, John Mauchly, Alan Turing, John von Neumann, Konrad Zuse, and others."
Established in 1996, The Computer Museum History Center is a non-profit entity dedicated to the preservation and celebration of computing history. It is home to one of the largest collections of computing artefacts in the world, a collection comprising over 3,000 artefacts, 2,000 films and videotapes, 5,000 photographs, 2,000 linear feet of cataloged documentation and gigabytes of software
"This web document is a sneak peek at a book project of mine. Since 1994, I have browsed over 1000 sources for date information related to microcomputers. This brief summary includes many of the essential happenings that shaped the industry. The full text contains close to 3000 entries. I have tried to keep it open-minded and unbiased, but the annoying fact is that "the winners write the history books""
This virtual museum includes an eclectic collection of World Wide Web (WWW) hyperlinks connected with the history of computing and on-line computer-based exhibits available both locally (Oxford) and around the world.
