Two-Bit History

Computing through
the ages


This is a blog about computer history intended for software developers. There's lots of writing out there about the history of computing for a general audience, but there is less for a technical audience. My hope is that this blog can answer interesting historical questions that might only occur to somebody who designs and builds software every day, questions like Where did JSON come from? and Why are man pages still a thing?
