In the early '60s, to talk about computer science meant talking about enormous calculators that were seen as pure science fiction to the vast majority. In 1963 the IBM PDP-1 occupied an entire room, cost $100,000 and was in few specialised laboratories. And while the world dreams about and fears this object of the future, in that small lab with tainted black windows, four pioneers invented the P101, ''the first desk top computer of the world". This is the birth of our age.
