On this day in 1981, IBM unveiled their first Personal Computer.
Created in secret in Florida, this machine had 16 kilobytes of memory and two 160kb floppy disk drives. – A very different image from today’s tablets and Macbook Airs.
Humanity’s ability to create this technology has grown so immensely in the 22 years since this was first released. Maybe it’s a good day for us all to contemplate the role that technology plays in our lives, and where the technology is taking us.
