   Not exactly what you ask, but for sociotechnical histories of digital
   networks, I suggest that you follow this thread in Air-L archive:
   Topic: [Air-L] what sources do you use for a "history of the Internet"?

   In a broader scope, here are a few references that you might find
   Bardini, T. (2000). Bootstrapping: Douglas Engelbart, Coevolution, and
   the Origins of Personal Computing. Stanford (Calif.): Stanford
   University Press.
   Flichy, P. (2007). The Internet Imaginaire. Cambridge (Mass.): The MIT

   Rheingold, H. (1995). Tools For Thought. The History and Future of
   Mind-Expanding Technology.Online: <[3]
   Schaffer, S. (1994). Babbage's Intelligence: Calculating Engines and
   the Factory System. Critical Inquiry, 21(1), 203-227.

     I would appreciate any recommendations for histories, especially
     social histories, of computing or information tech.
