HPR2968: Life and Times of a Geek part 3


Podcasts vom | Direktlink: hackerpublicradio.org Nachrichten Bewertung

Introduction

In the last part of my story (show 1811 in 2015) I told you about some of my experiences at the University of Manchester as a postgraduate student from around 1973.

Today I want to talk a little more about my time in Manchester and mention some of the things I did that may be of interest to Hackers!

Researching for the episode

As I have been researching for this HPR episode I realise how long ago some of these events were - in Internet years particularly. In many cases I could find no online records of places, equipment or people. This seems to be because any records there might be are on paper and have never made it online. I contacted a company that made some of the laboratory equipment I used that I thought might be of interest, and the person I contacted said that although he remembered what I was referring to the company had kept no records of it and had had to discontinue it due to modern safety concerns.

I find this somewhat dispiriting and it makes me feel very very old!

Long notes

I have provided detailed notes as usual for this episode. The HTML version can be viewed here and the ePub version downloaded from here.
