CHM Chairman Len Shustek- Tues June 25 @Oshman JCC in PaloAlto: The Amplifier for Our Brains- Who Invented the Computer?


Who Invented the Computer? Unfortunately for those of us who would like history to be heroic and uncomplicated, there isn't a simple answer. This talk will identify the likely suspects and describe what they did and didn't do to contribute to the invention of the computer. It's a story of dreams and disappointments, of successes and failures, of big egos and court fights. It is the story of what may be the most important invention of all time: the amplifier for our brains.
