Core Magazine 2019

Core Magazine, 2019 Issue

Discover stories that exemplify the ways in which people innovate, adapt, and grow, as well as our own efforts to do the same at CHM. You’ll read about a shift in collecting strategy to expand the known history of computing through “outsider narratives”; the journey from idea to startup of well-known entrepreneurs, like Yahoo! founders Jerry Yang and David Filo and Kiva executive chair Julie Hanna; and several extraordinary stories about the history, people, and future of space exploration as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing this year.
