Information Age

James Cortada has recently published a fascinating article entitled "Do We Live in the Information Age? Insights from Historiographical Methods." In it, Cortada argues for caution in applying labels to periods in history and suggests that we should be wary of considering our present day to be the "Information Age." Cortada mentions CBI several times in this article, including one very nice mention of us as "the world's most important center for the study of the history of computing." We have a collection of Cortada's research documents here, and they are currently in process.

The article was published in Historical Methods, Summer 2007. Readers at the University of Minnesota can access the journal online through the library's web site.
