Podcast: Interviewing computing historian John Pratt

Ulrika and Rob discuss Open Office's loss of the AA, interview John Pratt on the history of computing (and a very special machine) and get into Facebook and the Bankers Association

Computerworld's second-ever podcast is now online. We talk to John Pratt about computers in general and Differential Analyser No 2 in particular, featuring in a new Museum of Transport and Technology show in Auckland (intro starts about 6 minutes into podcast). Also discussed, the AA ditches Open Office, a Facebook frenzy and the shaky-looking new Banking Code of Practice.
