Like everyone else in this class, I’m a history major. Before I was a history major though, I was studying computer science. Since I have a background working with computers on a level on par with this course, I saw this as an opportunity to do something that combined history and computers. I also think it’s important that we make information more accessible to those who can’t access it now, and the ideas this course discusses aim to do just that. I think of history as not only something that tells us what happened, but can also help us predict what will happen. If we can share that knowledge with the rest of humanity then we can grow much more as a species.
