Home page for Paul McJones
I'm a member of the Software Preservation Group, and have been working on a FORTRAN project
to collect source code and documents from the early history of the FORTRAN programming language and also LISP
, and Mesa
projects for the corresponding programming languages.
I maintain a blog called Dusty Decks
where I chronicle my collection activities; you can email me at email@example.com.
Other software history projects that I've been involved with include:
- a System R web site for the IBM research project that gave birth to the SQL query language, query optimization techniques and transaction semantics that give modern database systems their performance and expressiveness.
- a Cal TSS web site for the U.C. Berkeley research project that built one of the first capability-oriented operating systems.
- the online IBM Stretch
Collection of documents donated by Harwood Kolsky to the Computer History
is additional information about me.
