Computer Bibliographies
 The Collection of Computer Science Bibliographies (Alf-Christian Achilles)
  This is a collection of bibliographies of scientific literature in computer science from various sources, covering most aspects of computer science. The about 1200 bibliographies are updated monthly from their original locations such that you'll always find the most recent versions here. The collection currently contains more than one million references (mostly to journal articles, conference papers and technical reports) and consists of 660 MBytes of BibTeX entries. More than 9000 references contain crossreferences to citing or cited publications. More than 80,000 references contain URLs to an online version of the paper. There are more than 2000 links to other sites carrying bibliographic information.
 Networked Computer Science Technical Reference Library (NCSTRL)
  "NCSTRL (pronounced "ancestral") is an international collection of computer science research reports and papers made available for non-commercial use from a number of participating institutions and archives. Some of the documents in NCSTRL are part of the technical report collections of participating institutions. For the most part, NCSTRL institutions are universities that grant PhDs in Computer Science or Engineering, with some industrial or government research laboratories. Other documents are contents of other document archives that participate in the NCSTRL technical infrastructure (see the next section). "

 Chronology of Digital Computing Machines (Mark Brader)
  "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."

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""
