Any fans of early internet bulletin boards might enjoy the latest additions
to 'Early Conferencing and Internet' section
<http://loopcntr.net/collections/collection.php?c=1650> on History of
Computing in Learning and Education <http://www.hcle.org>
We are actively building this site and welcome contributions of scanned
items and your labor. Our focus is the intersection of computing and
learning, not the whole computing industry. Education includes learning
with, through, and about computing.

There are many undiscovered gems in the LO*OP Center archive. This website
is just a sample. In the future I hope to be able to add a blurb to each
item in the online collection that explains where the item fits in the
development of ed tech and why the item is significant. If you see
something you know about don't hesitate to send us some notes to publish.
