Historical Review

During the History of Computing Topic, I am asking each team to turn in a Historical Review of a specific timeframe in history as it relates to ground breaking technologies. Each team will be assigned a period of time to research and to create a page in the Blogs@110 that discusses 10 technologies that were created during that period that changed the world. This example from Engadget is exactly the kind of thing I want each team to produce. Assignment Details This is a team-based assignment that is to be turned in via the Blogs@110.
