Cloud computing in 1963 ( actually Timesharing )

Found this on Feld Thoughts. Its not really about cloud computing, but they are interested in making efficient use of computational resources, which is one of the goals of today’s “cloud computing”  as well.

This magnificent video is from 1963 Timesharing: A Solution to Computer Bottlenecks where MIT Professor Fernando Corbato explains how timesharing works to MIT Science Reporter John Fitch (who has one of those magnificent deep reporter voices).
