Thomas Haigh is a professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM).
In an interview, Haigh discusses A New History of Modern Computing, a new book he co-authored with Paul Ceruzzi, curator emeritus at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum. Haigh recalls how he and Ceruzzi reimagined Ceruzzi's A History of Modern Computing, using each chapter to recount how a particular community of users and producers remade the computer into something new.
"The computer's journey from its origin as scientific instrument to a uniquely flexible general-purpose technology seems unique in the history of technology," Haigh says.
