  3. It looks like people are doing a search for “history software engineering” and coming up with this article, which, if you actually read it, has nothing what so ever to do with the history of software engineering.
    Since I’m not going to do someone else’s homework for them and since things like wikipedia exist for research purposes, I going to close this entry to further comments. Sorry.
