    First I saw this in my newsfeed.

    Inside card sorters: 1920s data processing with punched cards and relays

    Definitely a trip down memory lane for those that worked with data cards in the "golden age".

    Then there was this gem.

    Boole, Shannon and the Electronic Computer

    Now that's cool!

    And last, but not least, there was this fascinating read about Albert Einstein and Henri Bergson and how Bergson was responsible for there not being a Nobel Prize for Einstein's Theory of Relativity.

    Albert Einstein and Henri Bergson’s Great Showdown About the Nature of Time


    I love days like this!

    Very interesting! I didn't realize that Boolean logic went back so far!
