The history of computing is a large area, and there are many sites that can provide timelines and general information. Of greater interest, at least to me, is how computing (and the rise of the Internet) has changed the world in which we live. Without the computer, for example, I would not be conversing with you, or with people around the world.
Certainly the appearance of the Internet and computers that enable it, not to mention alone and by itself the immense power of the computer itself to perform mathematical tasks, or allow the analysis of large amounts of data, can be considered as axial to human existence as the industrial revolution.
What effects this phenomenon will have on man's political, social, and intellectual life--- what this means for the advancement of learning and an independence from metropolitan areas for research and invention--- is just unfolding.
Regards,
John
