Be a computer; See the world

This is mostly a note-to-self that I need to watch this documentary on the “female computers of WWII”. Their excerpt alone is interesting, and poking around the site it seems that the film looks at Mauchly’s project and how these women became not just computing machines themselves but then ENIAC programmers. If it is any good it could be a great complement to the Campbell-Kelly and Aspray book we teach in IT & Society.
