We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.

The Provision of Digital Computers to British Universities up to the Flowers Report (1966)

1996 article by Jon Agar in The Computer Journal, Vol. 39, No. 7, pp 630-642.

The Flowers Report strongly influenced policy concerning computers for research, at universities and at government laboratories, after its publication in 1966. In the previous decade and a half, policy was shaped by many interests, particularly those of government departments and academic centres of computer design. The issues and demands that led to the Flowers Report being commissioned, along with its conclusions, are discussed.
