RG — “I‘ve made a list of things that happened while you were a student at Hunter College: between 1956 and 1963, the first computer with a hard-drive and the first videotape recorder came out, DARPA was founded, the first International Congress of Cybernetics took place, the Bank of America released credit cards for the first time, Eisenhower made the first transmission of voice by satellite, and the number of computers grew exponentially in the US. Do you think any of this events, showing the fast development of information and communication technologies at the time has, in some way or another, directly or indirectly affected your work?”

RB — “Not in any way.”
