"From Bacon to Bits" 400 Years of Science"

This is a display in Wilson Hall at Montana State University. All the pieces are from Bozeman’s American Computer Museum. Among several significant works, in the display is a 2nd edition (1860) of On the Origin of Species, signed by Edward O. Wilson to George Keremedjiev, who runs the American Computer Museum. Wilson was honored in 2006 with the the museum’s George R. Stibitz Computer and Communications Award for his proposal to create an electronic encyclopedia of all life (eol.org). See an MSU news piece about Wilson’s visit to Bozeman (video clip), and more information on Wilson and the temporary display is available on the museum’s website.

Here are my photos of this display, including my signed copy of The Diversity of Life.
