Computer Science Canon
In studying computer science, I always wished for more emphasis on the history of the field. I like to read these formative papers in order to (a) understand the intellectual development of computer science, and (b) inspire new avenues of thinking in future research. Here is my first draft of a "Great Works in Computer Science" reading list. Please email me with your additions, deletions, or modifications to the list. I am particularly interested in nominations from the '80s, '90s, and '00s.
