Abstract

This paper tries to distill some of the 'lessons learned' from the Charles Babbage Institute's quarter-century experience (1980-present) in organizing the history of computing. It draws on the author's (recent) experience as CBI director; conversations with Arthur Norberg, CBI's long-time founding director; and papers delivered at a special symposium appraising CBI's role in computing history, which appeared in the IEEE Annals of the History of Computing 29 no. 4 (October-December 2007).
