This is a note from Rick Bunt, our Associate VP of Information Technology (or something like that) at the U of S. Our own Dr. Barry Brown will be one of the “pioneers” in attendance, and there will be food!
The Birthday Bash celebrating 50 Years of Computing at the U of S
that was originally scheduled during Technology Week in November
has been rescheduled. We are pleased to re-announce this Come & Go
event and, on behalf of our organizing committee, I invite you to
join us in celebrating this important University milestone.
When: Thursday, January 31st, 2008 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Location: Green Room, Room 280, College Building
Cake Cutting: 4:00 p.m.
We’ll travel back to 1957, the year the University acquired its
first computer. The celebration will include interactive media
displays, vintage equipment, retro games, prizes and of course,
birthday cake and refreshments. We also expect some of our
‘pioneers’ to be joining us.
Please pass this invitation on to other folks in your circle of
contacts. The more the merrier.
