Issue No.01 - January-March (2000 vol.22)
pp: 86-87
ABSTRACT
<p>In addition to biographies, this department publishes autobiographies, memoirs, and brief and extended obituaries. Each is intended to celebrate a life. They should be discursive, but concise, learned, and anecdotal, touching and informative, and occasionally imbued with compassionate humor. Naturally, they should include a thoughtful summation of the subject's life and virtue, as well as—where applicable—the cause of death.</p><p>We want these works to provide a mosaic of the social history of computing that will prove valuable to future scholars. Thus, subjects are not limited to the famous, but may commemorate the activities of lesser known participants in computing history. Indeed, the obituaries in particular are not limited to people, but may record the demise of organizations, computers, software, and significant concepts.</p><p>Readers are invited to submit additional comments concerning already published material, to write signed items for publication, and to suggest subjects that should be memorialized. Unsigned items are the work of the editor.</p>
