I had a recent discussion regarding the history of personal computers with the son of a friend of mine, who had just finished his first year of college majoring in computer science. My question, "What can you tell me about the history of the personal computer? His answer was "They were bigger?" The 40-year history of the personal computer is not only amazing but should be understood by all students of computer science. I hope current day educators join my endeavor, our future depends on it!
