IPSR Heritage of memory. as told by Professor Pramote PrasartkulA hard paper at the size of 3.2 x 7.4 inches a card on which research data was recorded, had been used by us at IPSR 40 years ago since the Institute was first founded. We did coding, to transform responses from the questionnaires into numeric codes. These codes were then put into computer cards by cardpunchingmachine. We would see IPSR researchers of the first generation carrying boxes of computer cards, or rolls of computertapes (look like movie film rolls, with diameter at about one foot) into which data from cards were transfered, to do data processing at the mainframe computer machine at Nang Loeng Horse Racing Tracks or the National Statistical Office at Sapan Khao. Nowadays, we have a handy drive at the size of little finger, notebook, laptop and many other types of PC. The pictures of boxes of computer cards or rolls of data tapes, card punching machine, mainframe computer center have been gradually fading out. Only memories of them left.
