Proceedings Seminar on the Computer Industry for Security Analysts, November 19, 1964
Newtonville, MA: International Data Corporation, 1965. Near fine in printed vinyl binder.. First Edition. Quarto sheets in three-ring binder. Advertisement for Honda laid in. Proceedings of an early commercially oriented computer conference, held on November 19th, 1964 in Newtonville, Massachusetts. The notebooks describe a wide range of computer equipment and applications. Speakers included computer science pioneer and antinuclear activist Edmund C. Berkeley, known for having designed "Simon", the first "personal computer" in 1950. In January, 1963, Berkeley was also the first person in print to describe an image as "computer art" upon publishing an image created by Israeli computer scientist Efraim Arazi in the magazine "Computers and Automation". Co-speaker Patrick J. McGovern had begun the EDP Industry & Market Report a year prior in 1964; that publication would eventually morph into both Computer World and PC World, as well as spawning the "For Dummies" book series. McGovern achieved massive financial success; at time of death in 2014 his net worth was estimated by Forbes at in excess of five billion dollars. Overall, a fascinating document from just before the dawn of the microprocessor revolution.
