A Guided Tour Of The Brown CS Digital Archive


    The latest cover story from Conduit, the Brown CS annual magazine, is an intimate look at a treasure trove of our department's history.

    Now in its fifth year, the Brown CS Digital Archive (BCSDA) is a crowdsourced effort to curate items that have contributed to Brown CS history and preserve them permanently online, where they’ll be accessible to all. The vast majority of the BCSDA’s more than 400 artifacts (photos, graphics, audio, video, and even code) have been submitted by alum Paul Anagnostopoulos. In the pages below, Paul takes us behind the scenes, telling the story of developing the archive and sharing some of its treasures. In some cases, we’ll also hear from the faculty members and alums who were directly involved with creating these bits of history. It’s all in the hope that you’ll take just a minute or two to send us artifacts of your own.
