So He Sits Down in This Coffee Shop in Portland…

, , , , ,

This young tech blogger dude sits down in a coffee shop in Portland to catch up on his email and do a little blogging on his Macbook Air, when an incredibly ancient geezer comes along and starts up a conversation about Apple computers.

The old guy doesn’t approve of Apple’s iPad approach: all consuming, no programming, no creating, no doing anything which hasn’t ever been done before. The young guy asks the old geezer what he ever did that hadn’t been done before, and the old guy replies: “I invented the first computer.”

It turns out that blogger Joel Runyon has just run into the 82-year-old Russell A. Kirsch.

Hat tip to Walter Olson.
