The Past is so amusing

Man operating mainframe computerIt’s facile to look back and laugh.  I would have been 12 years old, when in 1965, this video about “The Computer at Western” was broadcast. Yes. THE Computer at Western! which plays music and can do ‘ten years worth of astronomy calculations in just one day!’ One of many period news pieces at  The CFPL TV news archives, like this one; High School Student Appeals for the Right to Wear Long Hair and the Saga of Slippery the Seal, the story without which London wouldn’t have a soul.
