Sample text

The raison d’être for such a project was formulated in a straightforward manner: people were passing away. The senior practitioners in the focus groups made the first documentation efforts. They conducted a number of interviews, mainly with each other, but without following the established practice in oral history to, firstly, record them with sound (or, secondly, to make careful notes). Inspired by the curators at Nordiska museet, the members in one focus group also decided to write their own autobiographies, but it resulted in no more than half-a-dozen autobiographies.

69 Seldon and Pappworth, By Word of Mouth, 6. , Elite and Specialized Interviewing (Evanston, 1970); Eva McMahan, Elite Oral History Discourse: A Study of Cooperation and Coherence (Tuscaloosa, 1989). 64 22 1 Background and Theoretical Assumptions the existing sources often remain silent about several important aspects of elites. The written sources rarely record lobbying. Compared to oral history as practiced in the “history from below” movement, elite oral history has to cope with different methodological challenges.

90 The last two examples show that there is no patented best practice for how to proceed when creating and collecting oral sources on the history of computing. While CBI, the IEEE History Center, and others have established and used a successful, but time-consuming model for conducting oral history interviews that includes extensive research and preparations by scholars, alternative models cannot be dismissed a priori. It is worth noting, however, that all of the above-mentioned institutions and projects consider it necessary to transcribe and edit the conducted oral history interviews.
