11-26-1894 Cybernetics author Norbert Wiener is born. Wiener’s book, published in 1948, was a major influence on later research into artificial intelligence. In the book, Wiener drew on World War II experiments with anti-aircraft systems that anticipated the course of enemy planes by interpreting radar images. Wiener also did extensive analysis of brain waves and explored the similarities between the human brain & a modern computing machine capable of memory association,choice & decision…

Father of computing    Charles Babbage is considered to be the father of computing after his invention and concept of the Analytical Engine in 1837. The Analytical Engine contained an Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU), basic flow control, and integrated memory and is the first general-purpose computer concept. Unfortunately, because of funding issues this computer was never built while Charles Babbage's was alive.

A researcher at Stanford, Englebart’s Augmentation Research Center was the second node on ARPANet in October 1969.  He developed the Network Information Center at Stanford, which would later become the domain name registry, or the database listing every website on the Internet.  It is interesting to note that Sergey Brin and Larry Page, the developers of Google, also went to Stanford nearly 30 years later.

Sorry, but, Larry Tesler didn't invent cut and paste. Link in comments goes to Doug Englebart's "Mother of all demos" presentation from December Jump to for proof.

August 16, 1890 - Computer History - Census Bureau Announces Results Using Herman Hollerith's Machine. The US Census Bureau announces the U.S. population of 62,622,250, determined for the first time by using an automated method, the Hollerith Census Machine. The Hollerith machine sorted returns by completing an electrical circuit wherever a hole existed in a punch card and could process almost 10 times the number of census data than a human clerk...
