The High Tech History blog is dedicated to the engineers, scientists, and the innovators of the high tech industry. This may be loosely defined, but puts attention on the history of largely 20th century computing technology and innovation. Since high tech is always about what is new and what is next, it is important to take note of its history and many contributors to what has profoundly changed business, media, entertainment and daily life.
