Early Computing: Crash Course Computer Science #1


Hello, world! Welcome to Crash Course Computer Science! So today, we’re going to take a look at computing’s origins, because even though our digital computers are relatively new, the need for computation is not. Since the start of civilization itself, humans have had an increasing need for special devices to help manage laborious tasks, and as the scale of society continued to grow, these computational devices began to play a crucial role in amplifying our mental abilities. From the abacus and astrolabe to the difference engine and tabulating machine, we’ve come a long way to satisfying this increasing need, and in the process completely transformed commerce, government, and daily life.

Produced in collaboration with PBS Digital Studios:

    I think the initial impact is gonna be the biggest impact……just take a second and think about it
    it literally transformed EVERYTHING
    you don't get a bigger impact than that
    from here on out, it's just growth – not the initial shock and change ….. that only happens once, and it's happened
