Celebrate the Past, Present and Future of Computing
The Compuseum is a charitable organization comprised of industry experts, techno-connoisseurs and everyday users from a broad range of backgrounds and experiences who celebrate the role of computers in our daily lives. Together we build exciting exhibits and host educational events while we gather momentum to build a large-footprint, interactive museum of hardware and software in the Philadelphia region; home of the ENIAC, the world's first all electronic programmable computer.
We invite you to see, feel and interact with the technology and the people that made our digital age come alive. Experience the action and activity which built the trillion dollar computing industry over a few short decades.
The Compuseum and our team assemble, curate and showcase the newest information technology releases surrounded by the legacy hardware and software that made it all possible.

A New History of Modern Computing
A highly recommended book about how the computer became universal.
Over the past fifty years, the computer has been transformed from a hulking scientific supertool and data processing workhorse, remote from the experiences of ordinary people, to a diverse family of devices that billions rely on to play games, shop, stream music and movies, communicate, and count their steps. In A New History of Modern Computing, Thomas Haigh and Paul Ceruzzi trace these changes. A comprehensive reimagining of Ceruzzi's A History of Modern Computing, this new volume uses each chapter to recount one such transformation, describing how a particular community of users and producers remade the computer into something new.
Authors Haigh and Ceruzzi ground their accounts of these computing revolutions in the longer and deeper history of computing technology. They begin with the story of the 1945 ENIAC computer, which introduced the vocabulary of "programs" and "programming," and proceed through email, pocket calculators, personal computers, the World Wide Web, videogames, smart phones, and our current world of computers everywhere--in phones, cars, appliances, watches, and more. Finally, they consider the Tesla Model S as an object that simultaneously embodies many strands of computing.
