        Subject: grand narratives

Tom Haigh (Wisconsin), historian of computing, has written an essay,
"Thoughts on the eve of "Rebuilding and Rethinking: Grand Narratives in
the History of Computing", for an upcoming workshop in Siegen. You may
know Haigh's recent book with Paul Ceruzzi, A New History of Modern
Computing, and his admirable work in assembling and editing the major
essays of historian Michael Mahoney, for whose work we are all greatly

It seems to me that Haigh's thoughts on these 'grand narratives'
deserves our attention as well as that of his colleagues in the history
of computing. The essay may be found at

Comments on it will be most welcome.
