About First-Hand Histories
First-Hand Histories Engineers, scientists and related professionals have long been the main actors in the drama of technological innovation. Knowing their stories, and the stories of their organizations, is essential to understanding how and why technology has progressed as it has for the benefit of humanity. This is the first web-based site that gives technologists from around the world the opportunity to relate their personal, first-hand experiences as central participants in the process of technical innovation in its broadest context. See a list of all first hand histories posted on the GHN.
