Pullout--Texts from ENIAC's Birthday Celebration
On February 14 the computer world honored ENIAC and the Penn pioneers who ushered in the Information Age at SEAS 50 years ago. In this photo, Mayor Ed Rendell, left, and Vice President Al Gore flank President Judith Rodin in a midday procession to Irvine Auditorium, where Dr. Rodin presented Penn's Medal for Distinguished Achievement to Mr. Gore. Later, members of the original ENIAC team and students representing the next wave joined the ceremony as ENIAC was rebooted. Please see Dean Farrington's thank-you note as well as Compass coverage of the computer's birthday and a center pullout containing key speeches of the day.
