History of Computing: USSR edition

Greetings, Comrades!

Today, we’re looking at the weird and interesting history of computers and cybernetics as it were in the Soviet Union. Because now and then, I’d like to cover topics that are actually, you know, NOT terribly depressing. Also, don’t forget to check out Advent of Computing podcast, and enjoy!

Happiness is Mandatory!


Next week we’re back to politics.

  1. Great show. I’ll raise a toast to anyone who’s ever typed a BASIC program in by hand from the paper, flogged a computer until a game written for another system runs on it, or programmed their own darn game when the situation called for it, and I don’t care which side of the Iron Curtain they did it on.
