Lynn Sutherland | Klout Influence Report

Meta Site Thinking (again) – PART OF THE MACHINE
One of my summer jobs during University was in computer operations in a large data centre in the early 1980s. Back then hard drives were about 3 ft across, the size of a small refrigerator and held less than 1GB and most information was stored on magnetic tapes in a large library.
