The Australian Computer Society is collecting an Oral History of the ICT industry in Australia. It is an important part of their 50th Anniversary Heritage project.
Are you able to share your memories recorded on a mobile phone or an MP3 recorder using a standardised format, as set out below.
ACS will then have the audio files transcribed as a permanent record of our industry and will send a copy to you. The material may also be used in the history the ACS has commissioned. Be aware, the ACS will retain the copyright to this material – see copyright notice below.
Thanks for your submission to the ACS Heritage Project. Our goal is to create a broad-ranging history of the computer industry in Australia.
Your material will be formally curated and made available publicly online. If this causes an issue please let us know.
In the history, your name will be directly associated against this material. It will say simply that you submitted it. If this causes an issue please let us know. Anonymous work is perfectly acceptable.
Many thanks again. If you have any further material you’d like to send us, we would be delighted to accept it.
If you have any questions, email: [email protected]
Send your recording to the same email address: [email protected]. Maximum total attached size is 20Mb.
