Univac Spot

Jun
14
2007

It never hurts to remember where you came from.

On this day 56 years ago, the Univac, a computer – a small-room size computer – purchased by the U.S. Census Bureau was fired up for the first time. Today, a computer with that power is called a cell phone.

Now, 56 years is well within the lifespan of your average American. Think about that. And then think about computers 56 years from now.

For all these reasons, today’s HotSpot is the Computer History Museum. Geek out!
