+ - 50 years of BASIC->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Tomorrow, May 1st, is the fiftieth anniversary of the first execution of a BASIC (Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) program.

Fifty years ago at Dartmouth College, "in a basement at 4am on 1 May 1964, Prof John Kemeny and a student programmer both typed RUN and started their Basic programs at the same time."
How apropos that the first BASIC programs were run at 4 AM. It is not known whether Mountain Dew or Moxie was consumed at the time."
