Magnetic: The History of Computing

Nikki Bonomo

Humans have always looked at how to do things easier. Whether its to use an Abacus to quickly count inventory, automate accounting math using a machine, or quickly calculating ballistics trajectories using wires and Ferrite rings. Now, most of us use hand-held computers to simplify our lives, and the functions are doing just that! But, how did we get here? And who is responsible for all these great ideas? We'll explore this, looking into the origins of some of the most amazing devices and the people who came up with the ideas that led to them. Tune in for the science, thinking (and sometimes controversy) behind the History of Computing!

Not in this podcast. Welcome to the History of Computing. Let's get our nerd on!
