IT History Society

A new (or revived) organization called the IT History Society has been established. This society was formerly the Charles Babbage Foundation (CBF), which at one point was affiliated with CBI. As its overall mission, the ITHS "intends to help the process of creating and preserving the historical record...by acting as an international information point concerning IT history." (from the web site)

The web site has some pretty interesting and useful information, including current and upcoming archival and historical projects in the history of information technology. Specific to CBI, there's also news (in the Other News section) about Jeff's appointment as editor-in-chief of the IEEE Annals of Computing . I will definitely be returning to this web site for updates, and I hope that CBI will be submitting information about its proposed and ongoing projects.
