About

What's Advent of Computing?

A lot of little things we take for granted today have rich stories behind their creation. Every episode covers an influential computer, company, person, or event and how we can see it’s effects today. A lot of these stories either go untold are aren’t widely known. Advent of Computing serves as a way to get more people interested in the heritage of the systems we interact with on a daily basis. This ranges from investigating the origins of the early internet, to finding out why silicon is so important to computing.

Ok, but Who's Voice is That?

I'm Sean. I'm the host, producer, and everything else behind Advent of Computing. I've been fascinated by computers ever since I was a kid, I'm sure a lot of you are the same way. As soon as I could get my hands on a keyboard and textbooks I started programming, and I've never looked back. Computers, and more specifically what we've been able to make them do, have changed the world. Learning about how we've gone from gears and pulleys to silicon and electrons has always fascinated me, and I want to share that fascination.

It's covered! This will be enough to fully cover my hosting with  extra room for the books that I need to purchase for researching episodes.
