        Subject: New timeline on the History of Computer Storage


Hello Friends,

I am delighted to announce that CHM is launching today its new online exhibit on the history of computer storage, “THe Storage Engine.”

http://www.computerhistory.org/storageengine/

The exibit was created by CHM curator David Laws and a panel of historians and storage industry experts and offers rich, detailed descriptions of storage technologies ranging from Tally Stocks (as noted by Pliny the Elder!) to the present day.

We hope you will find The Storage Engine useful for both research and teaching and welcome your comments!

Best wishes and Happy Thanskgiving!

Dag
