This talk will cover my experiences of computing during some 50 years. A lot
has changed in this period. It is therefore hard to know how things used to
be, or how we got to where we are today. The talk will consist of personal
recollections and anecdotes, with the aim of filling in a bit of the history.
The content will be light-hearted and pictorial rather than heavyweight and
research-oriented. Some thoughts will be offered as to how computing might
evolve over the next 50 years.
