The History of Computing in Colour

Professor Martin Campbell-Kelly

Only looking at coloured imagery leads to new viewpoints and narratives for otherwise well-known histories, and the history of computing is no exception.
Martin Campbell-Kelly reconstructs a history of computing from surprisingly rarely-seen colour images.

This is a part of the 2013 Gresham College / British Society of the History of Mathematics conference.
