Serendipitous search

Today I was looking for info on image reconstruction and I ran across a link to the Mathworks site. Mathworks sells MATLAB, a scientific & engineering analysis package with a fairly popular Image Toolbox. (So searches for imaging algorithms frequently show hits there.)

At Mathworks, I found a link to a page about Cleve Moler and a video clip called The Origins of MATLAB. Here's a picture of a PDP-1 Mr. Moler used while a student at Stanford.

While I'm not a MATLAB user, I found the clip pretty interesting because of the glimpses it gives of the development of digital computing in the last 50 years or so.
