Did You Know

On this day, 63 years ago, ENIAC was officially retired. Taking up a whopping 1,500 square feet, ENIAC is considered to be the first fully electronic computer in the world. It was shut down in 1955 after 11 years of continuous service and was originally unveiled at the University of Pennsylvania in February of 1946. Main panels and components of ENIAC exist today as artifacts of tech history at the Smithsonian in D.C. and at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Engineering and Applied Science.



Have a great week and keep networking!
