Software Products Industry History
The history of software products was shaped by entrepreneurs, inventors, and researchers whose innovations changed our society forever. These pioneers started what some call a Third Industrial Revolution, the Digital Revolution, that made our online lives possible.
You could not read this webpage, play your favorite MMO or RPG game, search with Google, watch YouTube, or shop on Amazon if software did not exist. And, the software pioneers' work also follows you wherever you roam in the world.
Many new forms of software that can be traced back to the pioneers’ ideas are invisibly, yet powerfully, present everywhere. Programs help run schools, workplaces, stores, labs, banks, hospitals, government offices, you name it.
