How Computers Work: Introduction by Bill Gates | Video

August 15, 2019

Bill Gates kicks off an introduction to the series “How Computers Work.” Now you can learn what you didn’t learn in school  because computers didn’t exist back then, your school couldn’t afford them, you cut class to steal hubcaps, or you simply weren’t paying attention.

This is the short (80 seconds) introduction to a video series produced by explaining computers in terms anyone can understand. I know it’s not about birds, and this is supposed to be a website devoted to birds, but as computers in their numerous forms now inhabit 95% – perhaps more – of our waking life, it would be handy for us to know something about them beyond how to start your car, download a book or movie, post sightings to eBird, google migration data or I.D. a bird by recording its song. Like…how the things actually work. We’ll post a new installment approximately every ten days until we run out.

If you like this series and want to go through it at your own rate, the 17 videos listed HERE include the 12 which I have scheduled so far. Having some familiarity with the topics, I watched the first 12 in about an hour. It’s time well spent.
