I’m delighted to report that we have recently digitizd a group of historical films featuring many of the first-generation of computer pioneers.  These were recorded at CHM’s predecessor institution, The Computer Museum in Boston.  Today we release three of these historical lectures, featuring Konrad Zuse, John Vincent Atanasoff, and George Stibitz.  More lectures are forthomcing as we complete digitization.  (There are about 15 lectures in all).

You can read about the new films, including links to the full lectures, here: http://www.computerhistory.org/atchm/first-steps-lectures-from-the-dawn-of-computing/
