A History of Early Computing, Warning: Learning is Involved

Illustration for article titled A History of Early Computing, Warning: Learning is Involved

The folks over at Neatorama have put together a good semi-brief history of the world of early computing for anyone interested in learning a thing or two. By the way, when I say early, I mean really early—the saga begins with a 35,000-year-old baboon fibula that early bushmen were using as a makeshift calculator. Admittedly, there are a few glaring omissions, but sacrifices had to me made. I mean, I want to learn—but not if it is going to take all day. [Neatorama]
