This week, The teissPodcast is at The National Museum of Computing on Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes.
If you’ve not already been there – GO – it’s a treasure trove of historic computers…In fact, it’s home to the world’s largest collection, from the Turing-Welchman Bombe and Colossus of the 1940s through the large systems and mainframes of the 1950s, 60s and 70s, to the rise of personal computing and the rise of mobile computing and the internet.
Seeing a floppy desk, Pacman mazes and a Sega Mega Drive in a museum did make me feel quite old, but it’s incredible how these holy relics really arouse the inner child in you. It certainly did with my guest, Paul Watts CISO at Dominos Pizza Group PLC, who bounded and buzzed with excitement at the technology that had occupied his adolescence.
I always enjoy talking with Paul and hearing his thoughts on the past, the present and the future…In this interview we talk data – ethics and its future, the double-edged sword that is technology and…Chuckie Egg!
With many thanks to The National Museum of Computing.
