I can't wait to see this film. I can't believe this story hadn't been told before now. Glad it eventually being told. Thanks for those that are responsible for telling this story. It's very inspirational.. I hope it gets the credit it deserves..

Me da risa porque ahora en Mexico la que no se acuesta con sus compañeros o managers en IBM no llega a ser nadie, las mujeres estan muy desprestigiadas en IBM Mexico da pena y verguenza muchas que se jactan de ser managers o de tener mas de 10 años cogiendo en la empresa en vez de trabajar. En fin llegan a donde quieren llegar. Y muchas no hablan pq saben que cortarian muchas cabezas de managers que estan ahi desde los 80s o 90s y ya es una herencia

I request 25% – 49% Shares on IBM, as IBM and many of their deveopments have been stolen from my company by IBM.

Ugh. I took a Data Processing class in High School with those Punch Cards. They were still fairly common by the mid 70's. Yes, I'm that old.

Yep, that was batch processing and it separated the men from the boys. If you did not have the patience and stamina to wait a couple of hours for your results, debug your program, repunch your cards, resubmit your deck, and wait a couple of hours again for the results, a career in computers was not for you.

Just saw the movie Hidden Figures. It is a great movie and I hope that many young people of all backgrounds will be inspired to work hard to be engineers and other STEM programs. Reminded me of the quote from Martin Luther King, Jr “I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin to shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-centered" society.”This movie is "person centered" and not "technology centered." I think MLK would be proud… Read more »

When I was in high school in the early 80s, I took a continuing ed class at Notre Dame and we used computer Punch cards to do the programing. How time has changed. My mother was a key punch operator for many years. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keypunch in the 60s and 70s

If you get that time machine up and running, we gotta head back to 1970 and get me started on a better path. This whole "almost 50 and still trying to afford to go to college" crap just ain't working out too great.

It bothers me more than it should that they said the nasa computers had less computing power than a toaster, even though most toasters, especially older ones, work completely through mechanical and thermal means

I believe they might be referring to a modern toaster like say a Cuisinart or Hatco.
