The computer is said to be the greatest invention of the 20th century. It would be no exaggeration to say that our current way of life would not have developed as it has without the development of computers, and the IT revolution that has so enhanced our computer society to this stage continues to unfold at a swift pace.
But rapid progress sometimes ignores fundamental questions.
This series tackles basic questions about computers and networks with straightforward explanations that evoke "Now I get it!" responses. Each episode features stories of discovery and invention as well as experiments that will help you understand why computers, networks and their related technologies were created and how they work.
