Yes... Today the world´s first computer turned 70... But the account of its presentation is really interesting! Very few believed it would get far... Little did they know! You can read an interesting article about this on La Nación online at

This first computer fit in Conrad Zuse´s parent´s living room close to 1938...
CHALLENGE:  Can you write 10 interesting facts about the life of this man on a sheet of paper and hand it to me before Friday, May 27th?

Miss Florence,
What an interesting new,I never thought that the computer had 70 year, i agree with ambar for me the computer had less years.It is incredible how the computer had evoluced, and I don't even imagene how do people does them. For me this invention should be very important to the word because now a days we do almost everything with them.
See you on Thursday

Hi Miss Florence!
70 YEARS!!!!!!WOOOW!!! Impressive!!I had no idea, nor I imagined that the invention already had that amount of years!
But it seems, that, as Ambar said, with this blog you learn more each day!
I admit, that now in these days is very difficult to do things without the computer, I think that the computer, (and I must add the telephone), is one of the best inventions!
So, if it has 70 years already, in 2041 it will have a century!

I was investigating, and the first cellphone, that was big, and expensive was made 38 years ago. The smaller ones were made 28 years ago, and they were more economic.
I discovered a huge difference of years, and I've been searching, and the computer was invented much before TV. My conclusiion was: computer is very old, older than many other famous inventions!!!
See you on Thursday, hope you enjoy your short holidays!
