For our March meeting William Lindley will present to us "75 Years of Computing in 60 Minutes"

William Lindley: 75 Years of Computing in 60 Minutes
The roots of modern digital computing go back nearly two hundred years, and through a series of pass-around artifacts from the past century, we will explore how the pioneers of the field and their groundbreaking decisions and technologies have led us -- for better or worse -- to today's Internet-enabled world.

About William
Mr. Lindley has been in the computer industry since he sold his first program (a printer driver for Heathkit HDOS) in 1980. He has used system from the earliest 8-bit microprocessors, through the PDP-11 and VAX, up to IBM mainframes, and has managed to write programs that did not crash on most of them. Mr. Lindley has been a GNU/Linux user since 1992 and has been free of proprietary software since 2001. Most recently he has been pleased to be an adjunct professor at Mesa Community College.
