Some of us have lived some years.
Forty years ago I joined the pioneers in the Development of Data Processing in Norway after being employed by the Norwegian Ship Classification Institution DNV - Det norske Veritas. My career has given me a lot. Personal and professional (and total kidney and heart failure).
But the almost twenty years within Human Resources, Leadership and Management, as a continuation of more than ten years of development within IT or EDP (as we called it in late 60s) have been fantastic years. I never would have been without.
These Monday Odd Shots was taken during that period when data storage, short term and long term, was saved on Magnetic Tape Data StoragesFor many of you using todays laptop computers, the web, e-mailing, photo manipulation and databases called servers, these volumes of sequential data storage may perhaps be a little odd.
When I started with EDP we used Punched Cards as the medium for input of programs and data. The computer IBM 360/20 had 128Kb memory (K = 1000) while my present MacBook Pro has 2Gb internal memory (G = 1 000 000 000).
However, I will save you for more of the historical details and only which you all the best for the week after you have visited Kathney for her and all others Monday Odd Shots
