More About the Author

I was trained as an historian and spent nearly 40 years at IBM in sales and consulting before joining the Charles Babbage Institute at the University of Minnesota as a Senior Research Fellow. I am the author of a dozen books on European history and two dozen on the history of information technologies and another dozen on business management. My interests focus largely around the role of information in modern societies: use, managemnt, and history. I am currently writing a history of the use of information in 20th century America. I just published a book on how whole societies adopted information technologies from the 1940s to the present, called The Digital Flood. It took a lot of work to do, but now we at least have one global history of computing.
