> Abstract
> 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.
> Speaker Bio
> Antti Kantee has been a NetBSD committer since the 1900's and has
> managed to do many sorts of damage. He is probably best (or worst,
> depending on who you ask) known for his decade-long workhaul on rump
> kernels. Antti very recently moved to the Princeton area, so in case he
> appears particularly absent during his talk, he got lost on the way to
> the venue.
