1955: a good year for computing

The top four people in IT: Steve Jobs,Tim Berners-Lee, Bill Gates, James Gosling were all born in 1955, making it a very beneficial year for the world of computing.

It may have been a good year for computing, but 1955 was a sad year for science, as Albert Einstein died on 18 April, 1955.

It was also the year that the first McDonald’s fast food franchise was opened: I’ll leave you to make up you own mind about that one.
