Distribution and signing of The Electron and the Bit, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1902-2002 created a memorable faculty lunch, on May
Editor John V. Guttag briefly described the long (nearly three year) process to complete the hearty compendium of significant electrical engineering and computer science developments as they were advanced over that span by members of the Department. Members of the book committee, including Fernando Corbató, Robert Fano, Paul Gray, Paul Penfield, and Frank Reintjes initiated the book signing, which caught on with all faculty members present.
The book is dedicated to Herman Haus, who had also contributed as a member of the book committee. Copies of The Electron and the Bit are available for $40 (and $10 mailing/handling fee). The book is advertised at its own website.
