I emailed (um, Professor Wilkes? Sir Maurice?) about this quote (I wished to cite it in the introduction to my PhD thesis). I was very pleasantly surprised (and quite excited, considering just who I was corresponding with) to quickly receive a reply confirming that the quote was indeed authentic, but he could not recall exactly where he had said it. --User:Robert Merkel
I have found it cited in several places to "Pioneer Computer Lecture, The Computer Museum, September 21, 1979", discussing the EDSAC. I believe this refers to the (now-defunct) Digital Computer Museum, so an actual transcript may be hard to come by -- User:puetzk
what did maurice invent or what does he have to do with computers?
