Hi, Christopher, 

I've found Nathan Ensmenger's and Michael Mahoney's work very helpful in understanding the social history of computing. 

Michael Mahoney's webpage lists articles he wrote on the history of computing: http://www.princeton.edu/~mike/computing.html
Sadly, he is recently deceased.

You can find Ensmenger's publications here: 
He has a new book coming out I *think* with MIT Press, but it's not announced yet on the MIT Press site.

Good luck with your work!
