“Very special book” outlines the history of ICT and computing in New Zealand.

NZCS has released a book that documents much of the history of ICT and computing in New Zealand.

Dubbed ‘Return to Tomorrow’ it includes 23 chapters, each outlining a different aspect of the history of computing over the last 50 years through the eyes of those that lived it.

“Authors include innovators such as Perce Harpham, founder of Progeni (New Zealand’s first software company) as he outlines the rise and fall of this ground-breaking company, Ray Delany outlining the history of health informatics in New Zealand, Johnny Chan outlining the business of open source, and many more,” says the NZCS.

The 400-page book is available now from the NZCS website for $49.95 (plus $6 P&P), though NZCS members can pick it up for $39.95 for a limited time.
