ESB Archives needs your help – were you an early adopter of computers in ESB? /
Did you know 2020 marks 60 years since the first computer arrived in ESB? It was the first IBM computer in Ireland – an IBM 650. This pioneering event reminds us of ESB’s long-standing commitment to innovation in serving our customers. To mark this technological milestone in our history, ESB Archives is collaborating with Tech Archives Ireland https://techarchives.irish/ to tell the story of how the first computers in ESB transformed working life.
We would love to hear from retired staff who worked on the IBM 650 system in the early 1960s. If you know a retired staff member who worked in this area and would be interested in sharing their memories in a chat over the phone, please email mailto:email@example.com for more information about arranging a call back. We are also keen to speak to speak to staff who worked in large computer installations both commercial and engineering, during the 1970s and 1980s, especially those who had hands-on experience in mainframe operations or applications development. If that sounds like you, we’d love to hear your stories. Please email mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
