History of personal computers (Triumph of The Nerds)

A WONDERFUL 1996 documentary about the history of personal computers.  It includes interviews with all of the key players.

 

Key take-away.  The men who made the first spreadsheet did not choose to profit.  They say that this revolution is due to the mentality of the 1960s of working hard to make the world better, not just for money.

This week I learned from Clay Shirky about the CVS flop that led to the Flip Camera.  I was inspired.  Ironically, tonight I learned that I could have learned about this 10 days ago if I would have read this article the first time the I clicked "Open in New Tab".  Back to the focus.  I love this new resource that I found regarding marketing, inovation, technology, and more.

Nicholas Negroponte founded the MIT Media Lab (1980), WiReD Magazine (1990), and One Laptop per Child.

image of 1910 postcard of idea of schools in 2000...teacher putting books in machine, child 'grinding' goes out to headphones to class
- 100 million children of 1.5 billion do not go to first grade
-Solution is learning to learn by themselves (no teacher is avaialable
-photos of one laptop per child
-as high as 50% OF ONE LAPTOP PER CHILD have taught a parent to read/write
"Education is cheaper than ignorance"
New constructionism
-$10 tablet is doable
4 things I needed...printed, dual mode display (Kindle/iPad), 10 meter drop test, under water
-Bandwidth is most perishable resource on planed. Use now or lose potential
-shakable energy generation for hand phones is doable
-creative thinking and programing are the two disappointments in education. Programming is the best way to think about thinking
-debugging is the best way to learn about learning...Seymore Papart
-students were curious about spelling errors, so they had better test scores (10:30)
-the brain does not read naturally
-but any 5 year old will learn language of any country in 8 months
-2 villages, 30 tablets each village, thousands of books that read themselves...go back and ask if kids can read 8 months later....in field today
