Where on SE is the best place to ask questions about computer science history?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
programmers.stackexchange.com is currently probably the best place to ask those questions.
If you're really interested in the topic, there's an Area 51 proposal for an SE site for History of Computers and Computing (http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/9912/history-of-computers-and-computing). It's in Definition stage now, so support / interest is very valuable right now.
Programmers.SE is likely the best current place to ask such questions, with a few big caveats:
In short, check out What kind of questions should I not ask here? before asking:
A Computer Science proposal is well on its way to beta. Please consider supporting it if you are interested in computer science; I expect that questions about the field's history will be ontopic.
Note that the current description "Proposed Q&A site for Computer Science academicians." is not the community's choice. We are trying to have it changed to something like "For students, researchers and practitioners of computer science.", so that is what you should expect.
