The Computing Industry in Minnesota
Most histories of the computer industry point to Silicon Valley or Route 128 outside Boston as seedbeds. But Minnesota has a rich heritage in computing starting with Engineering Research Associates in 1946, the same year that the ENIAC was first publicly demonstrated. Control Data was founded the same year (1957) as Digital Equipment Corporation and Fairchild Semiconductor. This Web directory explores the companies, organizations, and persons who contributed to the Minnesota computer scene. A Bibliography of Sources on the Minnesota Computer Industry [CBI 2000] is also available.
