Cuban Missile Crisis Memoir - Operation Fall Leaves 1962

Chad Bowers reads his father's memories from the Cuban Missile Crisis and 1962's Operation Falling Leaves. It involves a young man, the SAGE computer system and network, keeping the radar operational, and my parents meeting each other at the dairy bar near the Air Force base. Nuclear war seemed certain but was averted by a last-minute agreement between Kennedy and Khrushchev.

An audio/visual poem celebrating the VM/CMS family of IBM virtual machine operating systems of 1972

This is a tribute to one of my favorite videos. Video qualities, outfits, mannerisms, and cadence of the words. If it is too much, just forward to 7:14 for a less dense experience, and finally, forward to 26:35 to enjoy the original video.
