An old but interesting Feynman lecture on computer

I came across an old but interesting  Richard Feynman lecture on computers

World of computing has changed  drastically since then yet much of what he mentions remain true even now. There was hardly any means or possibility of predicting, back then, what future world of technology would be like.

Yet, his insights even decades back were pretty sound, his observations and speculations were very close and his explanations and illustrations are so simple to understand, though he was more of a physicist rather than computer specialist. Therefore, I believe this remains a useful lecture for students of computer science and software engineering even today
