Digital Recall: Computers Aren't the Only Ones With Memory
Virginia?Ferrell AndersenISBN: 0595267599;
Based on the author’s 50 years of experience, this book relates a wide variety of down-to-earth, first-hand and often humorous personal encounters with computers. An additional and unique, though by no means secondary, focus is on the shifting attitude toward a woman in the male-dominated fields of science and engineering since the 1960’s. This story is told from the perspective of one who was there during the modern computer explosion and reveals the human struggles and triumphs of the time. Digital Recall clearly documents the intertwining paths of the modern computer evolution and the author’s professional and personal life. At points where the two trails intersect, some interesting things happened.
