"Deserves some ACK
75 years ago today remote computing was demonstrated for the very first time. George Stibitz took a teletypewriter (the input device) to an American Mathematical Association meeting at Dartmouth, New Hampshire. The teletype was connected to his Complex Number Calculator at Bell Labs in New York a few hundred miles south via 28-wire teletype cable. In Stibitz's own words, "Those attending were invited to transmit problems from a Teletype in McNutt Hall to the computer in New York. Answers returned over the same telegraph connection and were printed out on the Teletype." It must have been mind-blowing to witness."
