        From: Willard McCarty <willard.mccarty at mccarty.org.uk>
        Subject: an old good book

Allow me to recommend an old collection of essays, a number of which 
will interest anyone with historical interests in digital humanities and 
the reception of computing: John Diebold, ed., The World of the Computer 
(New York: Random House, 1973. Some here will know that Diebold, an 
American businessman, pioneered the study of automation. His first book, 
Automation, was published in 1952, when he was 26 years old. Those shy 
of management and business but interested in early attitudes toward 
computing should not ignore this fellow. Anyhow the collection is very 
good indeed: essays by Babbage, Goldstine and von Neumann, Diebold, 
Simon, Buckminster Fuller, Oettinger, Parrish, Mackay, Mead, Gabor, 
Boulding, Arthur C Clarke, Neisser, Wiener et al.

Yours,
WM
