Are today’s computers facing the problems they were originally designed for?

Analyzing the reasons why computers were originally created for is a good way to understand it better and how it impacts our lives.

In 2015 I had the opportunity to meet a former IBM executive, an old and wise man, he worked in the design and commercialization of the firsts Electronic Brains (as IBM called them in the beginning), for me it was like meeting a veteran, someone that was an important part in the beginning of this tech revolution that has accelerate the organization’s capabilities and within the time is also changing the way we behave as society.
