Meet Computer Pioneer Arnold Spielberg (Steven's Dad)

arnold spielberg basic

Steven Spielberg's dad, Arnold Spielberg helped revolutionize computing when he designed the GE-225 mainframe computer in the late 1950s. The machine allowed a team of Dartmouth University students and researchers to develop the BASIC programming language, an easy-to-use coding tool that quickly spread and ushered in the era of personal computers. Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs all used the language when they started building their digital empires. Arnold Spielberg will be 100 years old in February 2017.

Thanks Arnold for making it so I could do this at my local computer shop:
