I think I've found some solid support for the view that Computing

"This timeline explores the history of computing from 1939 to 1994."

"The mission of the Computer History Museum is to preserve and present
for posterity the artefacts and stories of the information age."
For extra credit, and an interesting Scroll Down Memory Lane,
they've a hall of Fellows... Names link to Bios.
Ken is there, Bill Joy too. The Woz but no Jobs. Five from 1943.
Surprise! Linus is Mr 2008. Almost Haiku :-(
