Resource Summary

Rationale: The re-launching of a course focused on Harvard Project Zero served as a stimulus for me to set down the history of Project Zero, with particular attention placed on its early history. And so, on Tuesday, January 29th, 2013, I spoke off-the-cuff on this topic for over an hour. Those remarks were video-recorded and the sound quality is quite good. So, an oral version of much of this history is available for those who’d rather watch and listen. I’ve provided a written account for three reasons:
 
  • 1) It is lengthier and somewhat more authoritative;
  • 2) In the event that I get hit by a bus, it would be useful to have such an account available;
  • 3) Prompted by this account, I’d like to invite others to provide their own recollections. (See the list at the end of this essay). Of course, there are at least a score of other persons who would have recollections of the early days, even though they are no longer working at Project Zero.
