Computing oral history project seeks help

Viva logo

One of the top computer museums in the UK is appealing for people to help them with a very special project – ‘Viva Computer!’ – and is inviting anyone interested to pop along on a special project day.

Subtitled ‘A People’s History of Computing’, the project, which is lottery funded and organised by the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge, England, aims to record people who have interesting memories on video as an oral history record for future generations.

The organisers want to know:

  • Have computers changed your life?
  • Do you have a story to tell?
  • Would you like to be part of something very special and record your memories for future generations?

If any of this applies to you, they’d love to see you this Sunday 28 February between 11am – 4pm at The Centre for Computing History, Rene Court, Coldhams Road, Cambridge, CB1 3EW

To register your interest / book a slot for this free event please email:
