Thank the Victorians for our PC's

Happy Geek tweeted a week or two ago about this article Thank the Victorians for our PC.  I noted it at the time, and wanted to go into more details, but frankly I've not had the time to put into it.  So briefly, have a look - we can thank them for:
  • The analytical engine
  • The computer program
  • Boolean logic
  • Data transmission
  • Radio communication
Just where would we be without those?
