> OS : The underlying overhead of computation
> An operating system is a piece of code intended to help computer
> operators load punch cards -- hence "operating".  The timesharing system
> was created to allow interactive shared access to the handful of
> computers which existed at the time.  We will examine what is in the
> interactive punch card loader in 2017, what actually belongs in there,
> and why things are the way they are.  Like science, the talk is highly
> religious.  Unlike computer science, the talk is grounded in reality.
> Discussions, heretical opinions, and questions are encouraged.
