i want to inform you that the austrian computer pioneer heinz zemanek died yesterday at the age of 94. sure he did do more as developing the mailüfterl in the 1950s, but still that machine is what he is best known of here in europe.
the last years he was occupied in research the coming about of calendars, but you also might recall his "vienna definition language". he also was president of ifip from 1971-1974 (http://www.ifip.org/secretariat/zemanek.htm)
i think google did a recording with him more recently. my interviews are not done in english.
all the best,
