“Sixty five years ago, in a cluttered lab in Manchester, UK, three scientists changed the world of computing forever. Working with a machine they’d built and nicknamed Baby, they ran the first ever program to be stored electronically in a computer’s memory.”

“Sadly Baby was a proof-of-concept, and nothing remain of the original device—though there is replica on display at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, UK.”
