It’s an old adage that journalists write the first draft of history, and
historians compose the second. But what happens after that? Now in its
second year, “Mistakes Were Made” proposes that getting history wrong is
the inevitable precondition of historical research, as each generation of
writers explores that gaps and ghosts left by the previous. Turning these
insights on the swiftly obsolescing world of computer history, this event
gathers emerging scholars challenging traditional technology narratives,
and pairs them with creative coders, new media artists, tech innovators,
and other members of computer culture’s past and present “fringe.”
