  1. 1954 Computer of the future
    Scientists from the RAND Cporation have created this model to illustrate how a "home computer" could look like in the year 2004. However the needed technology will not be economically feasible for the average home. Also the scientists readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work, but 50 years from now scientific progress is expected to solve these problems. With teletype interface and the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use.

    Mark Roseman 2007-10-11 mark@markroseman.com
    At CHI'94 in Boston, Mark Roseman and Paul Dourish were standing around waiting for Ted O'Grady to emerge from a tutorial, so we could go to lunch. We were amused to notice the long, tired faces of the people in the room next door who'd got up early in the morning to attend a tutorial on GOMS. We joked about this over lunch with Carl Gutwin, and having nothing better to do later on, borrowed some facilities from the relatively unsuspecting Garry Beirne and Michel Beaudouin-Lafon, and documented the moment. The GOMSerciser was born.
