Comment les scientifiques de 1954 imaginèrent l’ordinateur de l’an 2004.
Edit: As I was made aware of, this is a hoax. Unfortunately.
… scientists from the RAND corporation conjectured that maybe, just maybe, people might own “home computers” 50 years on:
However the needed technology will not be economically feasible for the average home. Also the scientists readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work […]. With teletype interface and the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use […]
This is from an unfortunately unattributed clipping (from a paper that had a refreshingly undogmatic attitude towards splitting infinitives, I note). Fortran had just been invented that very year, by the way.
Via magpie at Pacific Views, who wonders what the steering wheel was supposed to be for.
