The Computer History Museum Prize is awarded to the author of an
outstanding book in the history of computing broadly conceived,
published during the prior three years. The prize of $1000 is awarded by SIGCIS, the Special Interest Group for Computers, Information and Society. It is established through the generosity of an anonymous donor who wishes to honor the Computer History Museum. SIGCIS is part of the Society for the History of Technology.
Books published in 2007-2009 are now eligible for the 2010 award. Books in translation are eligible for three years following the date of their publication in English. Publishers, authors, and other interested members of the computer history community are invited to nominate books. Send one copy of the nominated title to each of the committee members. To be considered, book submissions must be postmarked by 15 April 2010. For more information, please contact the prize committee chair.

I wish I had already published my book on the subject… Perhaps next edition, if it will happen.
