This was indeed quite the movie. Extremely uplifting and inspiring. A GREAT MOVIE for toady. Shows you that there is still HOPE.
So glad that we went to see it.
Quite a few personal touches for I. Yes, there was a lot of IBM (including punched cards) that was from my era and which I could relate to THOUGH I think they portrayed IBM poorly and unfairly. IBM, in those days, even more than now, were ultra diligent about new system installations. There would have been site surveys on top of site surveys. No they would never be hampered by a door that was too small to permit the computer to be wheeled in. And then they had FORTRAN.
I knew two mathematicians who worked for NASA for the Apollo program — both were men, though one was black. He (the black one), who taught me physics in Paris 1968 – 1969, was the one that got me into computers! And they showed Yuri Gagarin — and I was very fortunate to have met him, in 1961, when he visited Ceylon. I was 7-years old.
Great movie. I wish all Americans could see it. It should be shown in schools.
I am so glad I got to see it. I will watch it again when it is available online.
