If you've been looking for a sign to change your life, this is it. As you've probably figured out by now, life isn't a linear line. It's full of ups and downs, uncertainty, and confusion; however, what guides us through is intentionality. That's what illustrator and author Adam J.

Adam J. Kurtz (whose artist's identity is Adam JK, is a designer, artist, and speaker whose work is rooted in emotional honesty, humor and even a little bit of darkness, but always with the intention of connection, honoring the reality of any given moment, and being honest. He's been making and sharing on the internet since age creating his first fan website at twelve years old, eventually went to school for graphic design and learned to express, in his words “slightly too much." Adam's work embraces the world with a certain "backhanded optimism" and a dark sense of humor or what he describes as "positivity adjacent." And he speaks frankly about channeling human emotion into art, and generally just trying to be more okay with whatever we've got and wherever we are in life. This comes out, often, in the form of hand-lettered aphorisms and illustrations that you'll find all over the internet and social platforms, as well as in books, merch, prints, stationary and brand-focused gifts under his ADAMJK® brand. His books have been translated into over a dozen languages and his offbeat, fun and irreverent creative work has been featured everywhere from NYLON and Adweek to Vice, The New Yorker, and more. In his newest book, You Are Here (For Now): A Guide to Finding Your Way, Adam steps more fully into his writer side, sharing longer-form stories, insights, and ideas.

The History of Computing
The Dartmouth Time Sharing System and Time Sharing

The History of Computing

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 14, 2021 12:01


DTSS, or The Dartmouth Time Sharing System, began at Dartmouth College in 1963. That was the same year Project MAC started at MIT, which is where we got Multics, which inspired Unix. Both contributed in their own way to the rise of the Time Sharing movement, an era in computing when people logged into computers over teletype devices and ran computing tasks - treating the large mainframes of the era like a utility. The notion had been kicking around in 1959 but then John McCarthy at MIT started a project on an IBM 704 mainframe. And PLATO was doing something similar over at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. 1959 is also when John Kemeny and Thomas Kurtz at Dartmouth College bought Librascope General Purpose computer, then being made in partnership with the Royal Typewriter Company and Librascope - whichwould later be sold off to Lockheed Martin. Librascope had Stan Frankel - who had worked on both the Manhattan Project and the ENIAC. And he architected the LGP-30 in 1956, which ended up at Dartmouth. At this point, the computer looked like a desk with a built-in typewriter. Kurtz had four students that were trying to program in ALGOL 58. And they ended up writing a language called DOPE in the early 60s. But they wanted everyone on campus to have access to computing - and John McCarthy said why not try this new time sharing concept. So they went to the National Science Foundation and got funding for a new computer, which to the chagrin of the local IBM salesman, ended up being a GE-225. This baby was transistorized. It sported 10,0000 transistors and double that number of diodes. It could do floating-point arithmetic, used a 20-bit word, and came with 186,000 magnetic cores for memory. It was so space aged that one of the developers, Arnold Spielberg, would father one of the greatest film directors of all time. Likely straight out of those diodes. Dartmouth also picked up a front-end processor called a DATANET-30 from GE. This only had an 18-bit word size but could do 4k to 16k words and supported hooking up 128 terminals that could transfer data to and from the system at 3,000 bits a second using the Bell 103 modem. Security wasn't a thing yet, so these things had direct memory access to the 225, which was a 235 by the time they received the computer. They got to work in 1963, installing the equipment and writing the code. The DATANET-30 received commands from the terminals and routed them to the mainframe. They scanned for commands 110 times per second from the terminals and ran them when the return key was pressed on a terminal. If the return key was a command they queued it up to run, taking into account routine tasks the computer might be doing in the background. Keep in mind, the actual CPU was only doing one task at a time, but it seemed like it was multi-tasking! Another aspect of democratizing computing across campus was to write a language that was more approachable than a language like Algol. And so they released BASIC in 1964, picking up where DOPE left off, and picking up a more marketable name. Here we saw a dozen undergraduates develop a language that was as approachable as the name implies. Some of the students went to Phoenix, where the GE computers were built. And the powers at GE saw the future. After seeing what Dartmouth had done, GE ended up packaging the DATANET-30 and GE-235 as one machine, which they marketed as the GE-265 the next year. And here we got the first commercially viable time-sharing system, which started a movement. One so successful that GE decided to get out of making computers and focus instead on selling access to time sharing systems. By 1968 they actually ended up shooting up to 40% of the market of the day. Dartmouth picked up a GE Mark II in 1966 and got to work on DTSS version 2. Here, they added some of the concepts coming out of the Multics project that was part of Project MAC at MIT and built on previous experiences. They added pipes and communication files to promote inter-process communications - thus getting closer to the multiple user conferencing like what was being done on PLATO with Notes. Things got more efficient and they could handle more and more concurrent sessions. This is when they went from just wanting to offer computing as a basic right on campus to opening up to schools in the area. Nearby Hanover High School started first and by 1967 they had over a dozen. Using further grants from NSF they added another dozen schools to what by then they were calling the Kiewit Network. Then added other smaller colleges and by 1971 supported a whopping 30,000 users. And by 73 supported leased line connections all the way to Ohio, Michigan, New York, and even Montreal. The system continued on in one form or another, allowing students to code in FORTRAN, COBOL, LISP, and yes… BASIC. It became less of a thing as Personal Computers started to show up here and there. But BASIC didn't. Every computer needed a BASIC. But people still liked to connect on the system and share information. At least, until the project was finally shut down in 1999. Turns out we didn't need time sharing once the Internet came along. Following the early work done by pioneers, companies like Tymshare and CompuServe were born. Tymshare came out of two of the GE team, Thomas O'Rourke and David Schmidt. They ran on SDS hardware and by 1970 had over 100 people, focused on time sharing with their Tymnet system and spreading into Europe by the mid-70s, selling time on their systems until the cost of personal computing caught up and they were acquired by McDonnell Douglas in 1984. CompuServe began on a PDP-10 and began similarly but by the time they were acquired by H&R Block had successfully pivoted into a dial-up online services company and over time focused on selling access to the Internet. And they survived through to an era when they migrated their own proprietary tooling to HTML in the late 90s - although they were eventually merged into AOL and are now a part of Verizon media. So the pivot bought them an extra decade or so. Time sharing and BASIC proliferated across the country and then the world from Dartmouth. Much of this - and a lot of personal stories from the people involved can be found in Dr Joy Rankin's “A People's History of Computing in the United States.” Published in 2018, it's a fantastic read that digs in deep on the ways that many of these systems evolved. There are other works, but she does a phenomenal job tying events into one another. One consistent point across her book is around societal impact. These pioneers democratized access to computing. Many of those who built businesses around time sharing missed the rapidly falling price of chips and the ready access to personal computers that were coming. They also missed that BASIC would be monetized by companies like Microsoft. But they brought computing to high schools in the area, established blueprints for teaching that are used through to this day, and as Grace Hopper did a generation before - made us think of even more ways to make programming more accessible to a new generation with BASIC. One other author of note here is John Kemeny. His book “Man and the computer” is a must read. He didn't have the knowledge of the upcoming personal computing - but far more prophetic than not around cloud operations as we get back to a time sharing-esque model of computing. And we do owe him, Kurtz, and everyone else involved a huge debt for their work. Many others pushed the boundaries of what was possible with computers. They pushed the boundaries of what was possible with accessibility. And now we have ubiquity. So when we see something complicated. Something that doesn't seem all that approachable. Maybe we should just wonder if - by some stretch - we can make it a bit more BASIC. Like they did.

Founded in 1890, its main campus is located in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood. The University of Chicago is ranked among the best universities in the world, and it is among the most selective in the United States. IHOP - IHOP is an American multinational pancake house restaurant chain that specializes in breakfast foods. It is owned by Dine Brands Global—a company formed after IHOP's purchase of Applebee's, with 99% of the restaurants run by independent franchisees. Citigroup - Citigroup Inc. or Citi is an American multinational investment bank and financial services corporation headquartered in New York City. The company was formed by the merger of banking giant Citicorp and financial conglomerate Travelers Group in 1998; Travelers was subsequently spun off from the company in 2002. The Wall Street Journal - The Wall Street Journal, also known as The Journal, is an American business-focused, English-language international daily newspaper based in New York City, with international editions also available in Chinese and Japanese. Goldman Sachs - The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc., is an American multinational investment bank and financial services company headquartered in New York City. It offers services in investment management, securities, asset management, prime brokerage, and securities underwriting. Salomon Brothers - Salomon Brothers, Inc., was an American multinational bulge bracket investment bank headquartered in New York. It was one of the five largest investment banking enterprises in the United States and the most profitable firm on Wall Street during the 1980s and 1990s. Quotes Mentioned: "I was reading The Wall Street Journal every day and I was talking with other people in my community at my church, and I felt like I had other types of work that would be more appealing to me, something that was a little bit more white collar, if you will, or, you know, strategic." "I saw some examples out there in the world and I began to think about is what I'm doing now my my full purpose. And so my calling really became to find a role where I could have the kind of impact I was having in investment banking. But to have it in a way that helped people who really needed the help, to help those in poverty in difficult situations." "In many of these developing countries, the borrower is a woman who is more responsible, more able to pay back, and that's the nature of microfinance. And so our gender story is very strong. In education, one of the things that we find is as schools get bigger, they can then have more girl students. When family incomes are stretched, it's the girls that don't get to go to school." #GlobalDevelopment #Microfinance Guests Social Media Links:  Website: https://opportunity.org/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/randykurtz/

I am so thrilled to be speaking to  Adam J. Kurtz (aka Adam JK) on the podcast about his new book, You Are Here (For Now), a collection of essays and art about life, and change, and you, and me, and all of us trying to just be more okay. Let me say I devoured this book and had room for seconds it was so good.  Tune in as Adam and I discuss the difference between living and truly being alive with all the paradoxes along the way.  If the pandemic has taught us anything it's that we both have a lot of time and we don't. We know enough and also don't have a clue. Nothing is permanent and if you're evolving you're doing something right, but being busy is not a personality. Like I said, paradoxes abound. Let's get more comfortable with it all together in this amazing interview.  Resources mentioned: Learn more about Adam JK Read You Are Here (For Now) By Adam JK  Follow Adam on Instagram  Catch Adam on Youtube Follow Adam on Twitter Get Tiffany's free Radical Delight Kickstart Follow Tiffany on Instagram   For detailed show notes head to www.tiffanyhan.com/blog/episode390

It's FridayAugust 20th and we're here with local news, events, announcements, jobs, and more that matter to us here in Western Colorado.    Today - Next week's scrimmage and plenty of practice should give head coach Brett Mertens and his staff an idea of who will replace 2020 graduate Keagan Goodwin. Goodwin was a dual-threat quarterback.   Today's episode is brought to you by Elevate Internet. Whether it's for your home or your business they offer the best speeds at the best price.

Goodwin was a dual-threat quarterback. He threw for 310 yards and six touchdowns and added 147 yards and two scores on the ground in five games last season.   But now, senior Bridger Kurtz and sophomore Gage Wareham both have the opportunity to start on August 26 against Grand Junction Central. It's the season opener.   Mastering the playbook is key for Kurtz. And experience-wise, Kurtz has an edge. He even made a few spot starts last fall filling in for Goodwin. And he played well.   Excitement is ramping up for Kurtz. He said Montrose could do some special things this year.   This summer, he's focused on his mechanics, timing and fundamentals, making sure he's delivering the ball swiftly to each of the team's running backs.   And he's enjoyed competing alongside Wareham, too.   Thanks to a somewhat “back-to-normal summer,” absent of certain restrictions or uncertainty of a potential season, players are back to the routine of years past. Montrose's three-day full-contact summer camp in July at Western State University gave the players adequate opportunity to ramp up conditioning. It's the reason why Mertens isn't worried about going from six to 10 games — it's been a routine offseason.   He told us it's going to be fun. They missed last year.   To find out more about this story visit us at montrosepress.com.   Now, some local history. This week's local history is brought to you by England Fence. England Fence is family owned and operated, and they're ready to help you build your dream fence, archway, gate, or deck. Give them a call at 970-249-4430, or head over to their website englandfence.com.   Before we go a few things going on in our community that you should know about...   Tomorrow starting at 8 a.m. There's free fun for kids at Youth Appreciation Day. Expect multiple events at multiple locations throughout town. Highlights include Kiddie Carnival; Rec Fest; mini golf; jump houses; dance instruction; police K-9s; stand up paddle board instruction; arts and crafts events; super splash-n-slide; and even a CareFlight helicopter. You can check out the full schedule at montroserec.com.   Then on Wednesday next week head over to the Wright Opera House for their 7pm night movie! They'll be showing “Swallow.” It's about a young housewife who develops a disorder that gives her an irresistible urge to eat inedible objects. Keep in mind it's rated R.    Finally, next Saturday - the 28th, make sure to head over to the Ridgway RiverFest at Rollans Park.
