What if man had invented/developed audio-based computing before visual (terminal console and later GUI)?


i sometimes wonder if analog computing will ever make a comeback.

@tomosaigon it could almost have happened. We were using morse code and variants for early electronic communication. If the CRT hadn't been practical perhaps we'd all be enjoying advanced audio computer lifestyles now. I think we'd have much better voice assistants that had use beyond telling you the time or just passing our marketing preferences to amazon
