Description:

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is an industry organization, and its Global History Network (GHN) is a wiki that "fosters the creation of narratives that not only document the history engineering practice but also explain when, how and why these myriad of technologies developed as they did." The homepage of the website for GHN has an "innovation map" and an "interactive timeline", as well as eight rotating featured concepts prominently displayed near the top of the homepage. Visitors should definitely check out the "Innovation Map", which shows what events happened, where, and when, such as the industrialization and commercialization of photovoltaic cells in Japan in 1959. The eight rotating featured concepts have included "Ancient Computers", "Cryptography", and "Memristors" which are resistors with memory. The menu across the top of any page contains the guts of the site, including "Oral Histories" of the most prominent people in the profession, "IEEE Stars", peer-reviewed articles, and "Topic Articles" which has "broad articles on a specific topic" which IEEE members and invited guests can create or modify.
