Research and writing on the history of computing

[Oct 2015] The paper I wrote with Davod Nofre and Gerard Alberts, "When Technology became Language", has been awarded the inaugural SIGCIS Mahoney Prize for an outstanding article in the history of computing and information technology.

[Apr 2014] The website for the ENIAC In Action project has now gone live, hosting papers and technical reports about the history of the ENIAC.

[Jan 2014] My book, A Science of Operations, has been awarded a Special Commendation in the 2013 Fernando Gil International Prize in Philosophy of Science.

[2013] I am currently working on an extended project, in collaboration with Tom Haigh and Crispin Rope, investigating the history of ENIAC and in particular its conversion in 1948 to run programs written in an EDVAC-style order code.
