Electronic Brain

Today at a BBC historical exhibit in one of our buildings, I read a "strictly confidential" letter. It was from a manager at the BBC replying to someone that yes, they would be interested in discussing whether an "electronic brain" could help reduce BBC clerical staff.

The letter was dated 22 November, 1949.

59 years later, and we still haven't gotten electronic brains worked out. Fuck the future.
