In this presentation from O'Reilly's Emerging Technology 2005, George Dyson, technology historian, presents a talk on Von Neumann's life as he was developing the foundations of computing at Princeton University during the 1930's, 40's and 50's. An interesting look into the quirky life of one of the great scientists of the past."
