Please note that the "Object-Oriented Programming: 1961-1967" IEEE Milestone
<http://ethw.org/Milestones:Object-oriented_programming> was dedicated on
27 September 2017 in Oslo, Norway.  Its citation reads:

*Ole-Johan Dahl and Kristen Nygaard created the Simula programming
languages in the 1960s at the Norwegian Computer Center. They introduced a
new way of modeling and simulating complex tasks. Object-oriented
programming is now dominant in systems development. It is an integral part
of computer science curricula, as are languages built on object-oriented
programming concepts, such as Smalltalk, C++, Java, and Python.*

In addition, one of the three Computer History Museum 2018 Fellows is Guido
Van Rossum
<http://www.computerhistory.org/fellowawards/hall/guido-van-rossum>, "for
the creation and evolution of the Python programming language and for
leadership of its community."

> I was thinking that it might be interesting and fun to pull together a
> traditional organized panel for SHOT 2018 of people who rely on the study
> of artifacts (including digital artifacts like computer programs, and also
> online platforms) for their research in the history of technology. The
> panel could be an opportunity to present this kind of “object-oriented
> history of technology” work, and to talk about its promise and pitfalls.
