A very interesting question: Intersection Between Computer Science and History?
Which SE does this really belong on? Could it (and should it) be cross-posted or shared between communities?
It seems as though a user of history.SE with a strong CS knowledge could answer it, but a user of another relevant SE with history knowledge could also provide something useful.
Is there a mechanism (other than the popular question "ads") for sharing questions that cross SEs' areas of expertise?
