History of Computing

Today I'm watching this interesting talk on the history of computing by Douglas Crockford.

It's amazing to think about how people once had the patience to write a program on punched cards and waited hours to find out "a comma was missing."  I had a taste of this myself as a kid when retrieving programs off cassette tapes, but looks like I had it easy. ;)

If you found this video interesting there are additional chapters that discuss javascript.
