报告摘要:

This talk recalls 60 years of computing. In that time,computers and software have changed almost beyond recognition. It has been mygood fortune to see and participate in some major changes in computing and toknow well some of the people responsible.

This talk offers aclose-up view of the growth of graphics from 1963 to 1975 and the Mead-Conwayintegrated circuit revolution that followed a few years later. I will speculateon what helps major technical changes. I hope to convey both the very personal natureof technical research and the thrill I have had from learning new things. Threefactors seem important to good research: 1) a worthy problem, 2) financialsupport, and 3) leadership. Of these, leadership is the most difficult to find.
