Our thanks to Douglas for this gem (video, 3:31) from the BBC. It’s presented by Marie Hicks, “Historian of Technology”, and is part of the BBC project, “Amazing women in STEM you need to know about.” The video is so woefully poor, and the understanding of the history of IT so dire, that it’s sole redeeming quality is that it’s hilarious. Who says feminists can’t create comedy?
A million British people a year are tearing up their TV licences. Why? It’s a mystery, all right.
If everyone who read this gave us £10.00 – or even better, £10.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
