We now arrive in the electronic era. Between the invention of the lamp and the development of the vacuum tube there is a world of difference. But in the era of industrial development every thing is going like lightning. New inventions are done every day.
Around this year Adolph Hitler starts the second
world war terrorizing Europe and murdering people just because they
were thought different.
But the war will have a big influence on developing computers. the need for faster computers is acute. Because the military wanted to decipher the enemies coded messages. Others wanted to calculate trajectories for their big gunshells and bombs. Looking just at the development of computers the war was a blessing in disguise.
Still a lot of inventions and advances in sciences
were lost or invented more than once. The Germans had their "Informations
Sperre" (information stop). The English had their silly secrecy
act, and had their developments kept secret until the 1970's.
