You know, if memory serves, some of the list members are approaching four score years. They should remember what they were doing about the time the first commercial digital computers were released upon the world.

That would be the UNIVAC I in 1952, which went to the Census Bureau as I recall.
I was too young for computing -- spent most of the time watching Arthur Godfrey
and Jerry Lester (remember him?) on TV.   Seems to me that was also the year
Elizabeth II was crowned, Adlai Stevenson lost the election to Ike, etc....
I got a way to go before I hit four-score!
