Dude, Where's my Floppy? I Mean USB, I Mean Flash Drive...Technology is Evolving, Are You?
Nice infographic. And yes, I started at the top.
It is nice.... but this infographic is really about personal, desktop computing: those people who designed punched card systems etc back in the 1960s were also (usually) IT professionals, even if there might have been a different name for them! Before that, it's probably true to say that most computer operators were the same people who designed and built them.
My dad came to a tour of the Microsoft "museum" that starts around the 70s. He was joking that they jumped into the middle of the story - he started writing code in the 50s... got some great pictures of him (probably from the 60s or 70s though) http://blog.amygeek.com/2013/02/cool-old-pix-my-dad-took-at-work.html
Didn't you start with punchards? :) No offense intended...
Last year I was cleaning my cupboard I found the last 3.5" disk. I turned to my then 12 year older daughter asking her: "Do you know what this is?"
She looked at it completely clue less then the discovered the slider with the snap mechanism which used to protected the disk from being touched. She draw it open and let it snap back about two times.
Then she gave me a glance and asked: "It isn't a kind of camera, is it?"
While we get older (ok, I missed the punchcards by one year ..), the Dude in the picture gets younger?!?
Started at the top also. Still have a mint condition, made in Germany, engineering slide-rule ... just in case. Ran out of punch cards. Vacuum tube volt-meter quit working. Time pencil is on back-order. The OS X terminal still works though ...
I started a the end of the top, but grew up with a "TRON" poster in my room and had it as audio cassette. Hope that counts, too ;-)
