Greetings, SIGCIS members.

I'm not sure how many on this list are aware of the historical content
presented by the University of Michigan's Charles Severance in his
"Computing Conversations" for IEEE's *Computer* magazine and web site:


Severance frequently includes historical content, even for relatively
modern technologies.  At the above site you'll find a link to a very well
done video on Bletchley Park and some other topics that might be of

His column in the November *Computer* on the origins of PHP seems not to be
linked yet on the site above, but can be read or heard at:



Nothing Earth-shaking about these presentations, but I find it interesting
to see how history is presented to practicing computing professionals and
what they seem to be interested in.
