Though it seems like all advancements in computing have occurred in the last few decades, in reality the technology behind computers dates back to early civilizations, such as our modern conception of numbers. Inventions in Computing: From the Abacus to Apple Computers discusses the history of the abacus, the Jacquard loom, computer animation programs, and the Apple computer in the order they were developed. The book shows how each subsequent invention was predicated on the invention before, how these innovations shaped the creative process, and how computers have come to play an integral role in our daily lives.
