50 Years of Carolina Computing

UNC celebrated its 50th anniversary of computing today. It was a fantastic event, with Nobel laureates and everything. See the official press release here:

Search Twitter for the hashtag #UNCcomp50 for an idea of what happened. Full video of the event is imminent.

My video is of some of the slideshow that was playing before the event got started. The video really doesn't do the pictures justice, but they did prompt me to try to figure out where they came from. I was jazzed to discover there is a UNC-Chapel Hill Computing History group website: http://www.ibiblio.org/comphist/
