Kicking Off the Computer Age

4 Feb, 2010 | TdpGeneral

The BBC has a couple of interesting articles about the start of the computer age in the UK.  The first is on the Small Scale Experimental Machine (SSEM, more commonly known as Baby), developed at Manchester University and the world’s first programmable computer.  The second covers the Edsac computer developed in Cambridge with funding from Lyon’s (the cake makers), which helped start the use of computers in business.
