Abstract

Attempting to illuminate the utility of amateurism for the history of computing, this article examines the records of the Amateur Computer Society (1966–1976), a hobbyist organization whose newsletters chronicle an important corner in the field. The author looks at both the discussion of schematics as a contested representation of amateur expertise and the crucial links between amateur practice and domesticity.
