60 Years since The Baby

Manchester is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the first stored program computer, “The Baby”. A link to this was circulated around the Comp Sci email at Nottingham. A fascinating website.

Hello world!

I thought I’d get myself a blog, separate from my university pages. Hopefully from now on I can use this as a place to put various essays and ideas that I have that are not directly relevant to my academic career. For now, I need to get ready for my trip to Toulouse on Monday, so not much will appear here for a little while.
