I love this flash of the computing past.

I learned programming in the late 1970s at a community college in Klileen Texas using programs printed out and run on punch cards on a computer that probably had less smarts than my current smartphone. We are living through an amazing historical time in computing.

I love it! What a history and what a great story. We should not forget that we make history as we speak. Whatever seems normal today may be a part of a great story in the future.
