Bill's Podcast 1: How 1970 Saw Our Computerized Society

The Computerized Society (1970)The Computerized Society (1970)I was inspired to do my first solo Armchair Arcade Radio audio podcast by a 49 cent book from 1970 that I received in the mail from Amazon today. As you can imagine, this was not just any 49 cent book from 1970, but James Martin's and Adrian R.D. Norman's, The Computerized Society. As mentioned in the podcast, I first learned of this book here. Take a listen to why I think it's so special by playing or downloading the audio file attached to this post, or simply visit iTunes and look up the charmingly misnamed "Armchair Arcade Radio" (it also features videos), or use your favorite podcatcher. Enjoy.

Yeah, I've got to see about scanning this with my book scanner if it's not already available in PDF. It's worth reading through for the amazing prognostication, though it would be far more convenient for me on the iPad!

Anyone know of an available online copy before I go to the trouble of scanning it (I haven't researched yet)?
