Submitted by certron
certron (57841) writes "BBC News is reporting that: The "father" of British computing, Sir Maurice Wilkes, has died at the age of 97.
Sir Maurice was the designer and creator of Edsac, a computer that ran its first program in May 1949.
The Cambridge machine was the first widely-useable stored program machine and was very influential on the nascent British computer industry.
It set standards for how computers should be used in academia and business that have lasted until the present day."
