[#DIV28SUPER] NYTimes: Wesley A. Clark, Who Designed First Personal Computer, Dies at 88


Mr. Clark's designs built a bridge from the era of mainframe systems that were programmed with stacks of punch cards to personal computers that respond interactively to a user.

NIH subsequently funded a small cohort of researchers to see if in fact the Laboratory Instrument Computer could be put to productive use. Bernie Weiss and Donald Blough were in that cohort. My first laboratory computer thanks to Bernie's vision, a miraculous advance. The precursor to modern systems that demonstrated the small computer's utility for the study of behavior.

Thank you Wesley Clark
