as I already said in the past, the important thing is to recognize the achievements of prof. Dadda.
I am totally okay with withdrawing the 2013 proposal if this allows to speed up things, and to support the later proposal.
Just do whatever is faster, since it's almost 2016 :-)
Happy new year everyone, Stefano
The proposal suggests a possible phrase for inclusion in the Citation:
"The CRC102A was the first operating fully electronic digital computer in continental Europe."
There are other candidates for this claim, very likely the MESM in Kiev is from 1951, designed by a team under Sergei Lebedev.
For an English Language account of the MESM, see http://en.uacomputing.com/stories/mesm/
Since the CRC102A was designed and made in USA, the emphasis in the proposal needs to focus on the novel benefits which its presence in Milan initiated, which I suggest needs to be clear in both the title and the citation.
