  • Notes from the Electronic Cottage 4/23/15

    Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

    As important technologies go, personal computers and the Web are pretty recent. While we can’t see or hear, for example, Alexander Graham Bell making the first phone call, we can see and hear Douglas Engelbart giving, back in 1968, what has become known as “The Mother of All Demos” during which he demonstrated the use of new technologies like interacting in real time with a computer using a mouse. We can watch it today at www.youtube.com/watch?t=312&v=yJDv-zdhzMY. Definitely worth a look.

    Meanwhile, the personal computer revolution has brought us to a point at which we recognize not only the wonders of digital technology but dangers as well. Two recent books looking at those dangers are also definitely worth look: “Data and Goliath” by Bruce Schneier, and “Future Crimes” by Marc Goodman.
