Virtual Museum of Computing
The Virtual Museum of Computing (VMoC) is an eclectic collection of links and online resources concerning the history of computers and computer science. It includes links to other related museums, both real and virtual, around the world, as well as having its own virtual galleries of information. A particular feature is the early computing pioneer Alan Turing, among others.
This virtual museum was founded by Jonathan Bowen in 1994, originally at the Oxford University Computing Laboratory in the United Kingdom. It is supported by Museophile and also forms part of the Virtual Library museums pages, subsequently hosted at the University of Reading and London South Bank University, mirrored around the world. It is now available as a wiki on the MuseumsWiki, hosted on Wikia.
