“All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace”

Hmmm… Just finished watching this 3-part BBC series (Adam Curits- had to download it on to iPlayer desktop to give myself a bit more time…).

Although enjoyable, overall I found it a bit disjointed (still not sure about the relevance of the Rwandan Genocide segment) and as for “This is the story of the dream that rose up in the 1990s that computers could create a new kind of stable world”- surely this dream started at M.I.T. in the late 50’s/ early 60’s? Granted, the dream might not have (been fully realised until the 1990’s but it was envisioned 30/40 years earlier (pre ARPANet).
