Galaksija, Cult Yugoslav DIY Computer from the 1980s Lives On | Balkanist
"During the mid-1980s, Belgrade radio show Ventilator 202 broadcast computer software live so that listeners could record games and electronic journals onto cassette tapes. Some of this software was programmed and submitted by listeners themselves, reflecting an early open source ethos. Galaksija games like Light Cycle Race and Diamond Mine were available free to anyone with a radio and a tape recorder."

Co-Founder of Siri: Assistant launch is a “World-Changing Event” (Interview) | 9to5Mac | Apple Intelligence
"...it appears that Apple is getting ready to reveal what it has done with Siri over the past year and a half (we were actually expecting it at WWDC).  Make no mistake: Apple’s ‘mainstreaming’ Artificial Intelligence in the form of a Virtual Personal Assistant is a groundbreaking event.  I’d go so far as to say it is a World-Changing event.  Right now a few people dabble in partial AI enabled apps like Google Voice Actions, Vlingo or Nuance Go.  Siri was many iterations ahead of these technologies, or at least it was two years ago.  This is REAL AI with REAL market use. If the rumors are true, Apple will enable millions upon millions of people to interact with machines with natural language."
