Computing History at Bell Labs

In 1997, on his retirement from Bell Labs, Doug McIlroy gave a fascinating talk about the “History of Computing at Bell Labs.”

I only skimmed over it (at the moment I’m not interested in what was); but nonetheless it does look like a great talk with a lot of fun and interesting bits in there.
