Interesting choice of words the wordpress blog decided to use, this gives me a chance to go down memory lane a little and give some kudos to these 2 unpretentious words. You see, I just signed up for my very first blog, and what do you know, the first post is automatically generated for me and it is entitled “Hello world!”.
How great is that!
If you have done some programming you will understand my fondness for that expression. It’s usually the first lesson given in a programming class.
Wow, I remember my first few classes.
The first “Hello world!” coded by me, was on a “PC” (as I recall the term was coined just a few short years before my arrival to computers ) for a Pascal class running a Z80 processor, circa early 80’s for me. I think I was 16 or 17 at the time! Wow, such a distant memory!
My second “Hello world!” was on an Apollo station, yet another blast from the past! Who would have known that just a few years later, via a few acquisitions, I would work for the company that bought Apollo Computers?
Here’s to you my new old 80’s friend “Hello world!”, I missed you!
