    Nineteenth and early twentieth century American governments—local, state, and national—profoundly shaped diffusion of novel mathematical instruments. The federal government ran an office that judged what inventions were patentable and a legal system for those who defended or challenged patent rights. Governments at all levels employed inventors. Sometimes new laws required extensive calculations p... View full abstract»

    This paper looks at the case of transgender Britons who tried to correct the gender listed on their government-issued ID cards, but ran up against the British government's increasingly computerized methods for tracking, identifying, and defining citizens. These newly computerizing systems show some of the earliest examples of transphobic algorithmic bias: explicit attempts to program trans people ... View full abstract»

    The Rockefeller Foundation shipped two Apple II computers with VisiCalc to the Tunisian Ministry of Agriculture to address a grain shortage in the early 1980s. The foundation believed that VisiCalc would enable the speedy and complex analytical modeling necessary to improve the management and, consequently, the production of grain resources. The foundation also argued that VisiCalc would empower i... View full abstract»

    The evolution of computing cannot be fully explained without consideration of the legal and social friction that challenged individuals at the frontier of computer development. The incorporation of the personal computer into nearly every American household has made the technology central to modern social interaction and has expanded daily life into cyberspace. How do fundamental laws, such as the ... View full abstract»

    The Smithsonian has begun to post online descriptions of objects in its collections. Figures and accounts are now available for roughly 2500 objects from the math and computer collections— perhaps a quarter of the total. Our focus has been on small objects that are easily examined. Hence I recently cataloged the two dozen flowcharting templates in the collections. This brief account is intended to... View full abstract»
