The OTHER Computer History ISBN 783756233816 This book was just released.. An elderly man writes his experiences from the early days of computer science until 2004. At that time, it was not recognized for a long time what a gigantic transformation it will bring to human history. Successes of the IT and thereby also the so usual ‘flops’ as well as its own will be described as subjectively as possible. It is attempted by non-technical examples and ‘parables’ and precise translation of the computer-specific terms to make the whole ‘thing’ for laymen in this area a little more ‘digestible’. The inevitable upcoming associations resulted in writing down human anecdotes, amusing episodes, and description of picturesque situations. But he soon returns to reality and his own ‘theses’ and ‘philosophic’ illusions. With a laugh and tears and a blinking eye, he now says to his ‘buddies’: Goodbye. We had an excellent time…
