The extraordinary scale and the technical and social complexity of modern science and technology pose significant challenges for historians. The skills necessary to comprehend contemporary developments, as well as the vast array of objects that must be examined - ranging from documents through e-mail to video and computer simulations - make it essential to enlist the direct participation of those who were actively engaged in producing them. We have accordingly used the power of the web to provide digital libraries and collaborative software that will enable clusters of scientists and engineers to work with historians in developing the history of their disciplines.
