Description

In this episode, we visit some ancient Sumerians so we can expand our view of finger counting and see how this applies to counting with transistors. From this, we will have the basis for unsigned binary integers and the humble binary digit or bit. We also show how to calculate the upper limit to which a fixed number of transistors can count.
