Day in Tech History Hits 1000th Episode

On May 5th, 2012, the Day in Tech History podcast hit it’s 1000th episode. It was a milestone I thought was going to hit on June 15th, but made a mis-calculation.

I made the conscious decision to move the show to it’s own podcast in August. On 8-10-2009, the Day in Tech History officially began. Recording 365 episodes was a real beast. However, I put my head...

HP to Stanford: We Don’t Have Personal Knowledge of Computers

This letter showed up in my mailbox. It’s a letter to Dr.Fred E. Terman – Office of the Provost of Stanford University. It’s from William (Bill) R. Hewlett of Hewlett Packard Company.

Hewlett When did HP Get into Computers? The reality was, HP didn’t get into computers until 1966. At that time, the HP 2116A ushered in...
