That’s great news and sounds like an interesting read. It would be interesting to compare your results to the European „people’s“ computing scene in the 1960s.

> Dear SIGCIS Colleagues,
> I wrote a book!
> A People's History of Computing in the United States was published by Harvard University Press <http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674970977> last month. It's now available as a hardcover, e-book, and audiobook (also accessible via your Audible subscription) on Amazon <https://www.amazon.com/Peoples-History-Computing-United-States/dp/0674970977/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1542215629&sr=8-1&keywords=a+peoples+history+of+computing+in+the+united+states> and elsewhere. (Today it's just $20.04 on Amazon.) I hope you'll read it, assign it, and share it.
> Here's my one-sentence summary: During the 1960s and 1970s American students and educators collaboratively created personal computing and social networking on the academic computing networks they built and used; although developed with a vision of computing for the public good, those networks also retrenched the limited gender roles of the Cold War nuclear family.
> Thank you for making the space for me to share, revise, and improve this work starting when I was a graduate student. I've greatly appreciated the support of the SIGCIS community, especially over the past year or so.
> Sincerely,
> Joy
