IN THE NEWS

John Blankenbaker
John Blankenbaker is well-known for his ground breaking invention, the Kenbak-1 Digital Computer. It first went on sale in September of 1971 and is considered the world's first commercially available personal computer. Mr. Blankenbaker invented this machine back in 1970 in his home in Brentwood, California. Blankenbaker's hope was to provide a machine that was low enough in cost to provide education and fun for individuals. He received the 2017 Oregon Stater Hall of Fame Award from the College of Engineering at Oregon State University. Oregon State Productions (video)
