CHM is Partnering with The Verge to Look at Critical Innovations in Technology History

Mountain View, CA  |  January 19, 2023

Mountain View, CA – Jan. 19, 2023: The Computer History Museum, the leading museum exploring the history of computing and its impact on the human experience, announced a partnership with The Verge this year to explore some of the most important innovations that changed the future of technology and the world.

A respected tech news website operated by Vox Media, The Verge’s mission “to examine how technology will change life in the future for a massive mainstream audience” complements CHM’s mission to decode technology for everyone—its computing past, digital present, and future impact on humanity.

The two organizations will first take a closer look at Apple’s Lisa computer, whose innovative graphical user interface changed the way people relate to computers. As part of its Art of Code program, the Computer History Museum publicly released the source code of the Lisa. And on January 31 at 7 p.m. PT, the Museum is holding a live in-person and virtual event to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Lisa. The event will include insider stories of the Lisa’s development, expert commentary on lessons learned, a demonstration of a working computer, and more. The Verge will offer a feature article, a new documentary about the Lisa, and more.

Later this year, CHM will work with The Verge to explore the past and future of networking and the internet on the 50th anniversary of ethernet and the Xerox Alto: the computer that pioneered the modern graphical user interface.
