How did the French looms influence the creation of modern computers? Who was the first female programmer in the world? How can we listen to the first song ever recorded? How did the first GIFs look like? Who were the first Luddites? In this public lecture, Liviu Pop explored the strengths and weaknesses of technologies and the nuisance that it causes.
