        Subject: more on early views of computing

In addition to Yood's lecture, you might also be interested in the

Steve Ditlea, ed. Digital Deli: The comprehensive, user-lovable menu of
computer lore, culture, lifestyles and fancy. New York: Workman
Publishing, 1984. Available from the Internet Archive:

There are, as you likely know, many collections, some more technical and
more valuable for what scholars and scientists thought at that time, but
it's also a very good idea to know what ordinary citizens encountered in
their daily lives (including scholars and scientists when they were at
home). I'd be grateful for any refererences to additional sources of
such insights as Ditlea's collection provides.
