50 Years of Computing at CMU

The celebration of 50 years of computer science at CMU seems to be gaining a lot of publicity. This bends the situation somewhat as CMU’s first computer was an IBM 650 and housed in the Business School!

One must remember that British universities such as Cambridge and Manchester have celebrated their 50 years in computng almost 10 years ago, and they built their own computers from scratch!
