Dear SIGCIS members,

This is a reminder that article submissions for the special/theme issue 
of IEEE Annals of the History of Computing on Labor History of 
Information Technology are due a month from today (January 15, 2010).

The labor theme (as described in the CFP below) is broadly conceived.  
The articles passing review will be published in the October 2010 issue 
of IEEE Annals of the History of Computing (in other words, there will 
be a very short time frame from final acceptance to seeing your article 
in print!).

If I can answer any questions, comment on a draft, etc., please let me know.
