Today I learned that revisionist history is alive and well. Most US sources list ENIAC (1946) as the first electronic computer - even though Konrad Zuse's Z1 (1938), Atanasoff Berry's ABC (1942), and Colossus (1943) all came before. This is why we cannot trust history books.
The Google search results are pretty damning - listing ENIAC first. Wikipedia is wrong, and even the Encylopedia Britannica is flat-out wrong. I'm kind of stunned.
@rachelsquirrel welcome to Mastodon! It's all a bit strange at first, but you quickly get used to it :)
Sunday trip to London complete - Miss 18 now has long sought after Doc Martens, and a vastly expanded Manga collection - paid for from her first pay packet from her first full time job #proud
