"Spellbinding" is the apt but unintentionally humorous response from company groups when they see the working WITCH, the world's oldest digital computer, at The National Museum of Computing. With flashing tubes and clattering relays, the 1950s WITCH is becoming renowned as the most mesmerising as well as the oldest working digital computer on the planet.
Since the beginning of this year a growing number of companies in the Milton Keynes region have been able to take advantage of the world class resource that is on their doorsteps. On Tuesday 18 June 2013, there will be an open evening for representatives of businesses in MK and further afield to see for themselves what the Museum has to offer.
"Companies can arrange away-days and team-building days and see their computing heritage in action at the home of the world's first electronic computer, Colossus," explained Andrew Spencer, the recently appointed Corporate Events Manager at TNMOC. "It's fantastic to see their response to these early machines that may only a few decades old, but seem eons away in terms of modern computing. Nonetheless with machines like Colossus and the WITCH, they can actually gain insights into how computers actually work -- and, as they say, they become "spellbound"."
