BCL and CSL technology mentioned on Wikipedia
Not just people from BCL and CSL are recognized, but also things, including:
- Wikipedia has a DECtape article that mentions LINCtape, the LINC, LINC-8, PDP-12, Wesley Clark, and the MIT Lincoln Laboratory. The article includes that LINCtape and DECtape are identical except that they run in opposite directions.
- The LINC, Laboratory INstrument Computer was a big part of BCL in the earlier years.
- Macromodules, a big part of the research at CSL are only briefly mentioned in passing on Wikipedia.
- For a number of years BCL was the home of the MUMPS Users Group. This is omitted in the Wikipedia MUMPS entry.
- The PC12 minicomputer article seems to be describing a descendent of what we know as the PC, the Programmed Console. Jerry Cox, PDP-8, LINCtape, RTP, MUMPS, and Modulex are mentioned. Rho-theta and Datamaster cards (modified Language Master cards) are omitted. See the “Talk” and “View history” sections of this article.A cached, expanded version of PC12exists in the Wikipedia “sandbox.” We are warned not to link to this. Again, see the “Talk” and “View history” sections of this article.Wikipedia has an Artronix article that mentions Washington University School of Medicine, but not the laboratories, RTP, radiation treatment planning, and MUMPS. See the “Talk” and “View history” sections of this article. The author states in the “Talk” section that he, Charley Quinton, Kentucky, is seeking photos of the PC12 and is trying to find members of the Artronix team.
- The DigiBarn Computer Museum is devoted to capturing and preserving the history of computing especially the physically smaller systems. There is significant coverage of the 45th Anniversary of The LINC: A Paradigm Shift 1962: The First Personal Computer held at the Digibarn in 2007. There are many pictures, videos, explanatorily text, biographies, etc. You can explore this rich site for hours.
