In 1991, Davidson College hosted the second NSF-sponsored Conference on Computational Undergraduate Physics. Over 125 physicists from the United States and four foreign countries attended the four-day event. This conference offered the unique feature of giving each participant a computer account and asked that each bring and share software and curriculum material. Within hours of open registration, 350 megabytes of programs (but almost no images or text) appeared on the server. Almost every participant contributed a small homegrown DOS or Apple II program.
