Abstract

On the occasion of the 65th birthday of informatics professor Wolfgang Coy, the text takes a look back at companions, at themes and at the tides of media events. Along the base media image, script, number, it re-counts the discovery of the computer as a medium, and the naming of its epoch as Turing Galaxy. At the same time, by recalling Coy's programmatic work for an informatics that is conscious of its social responsibility it looks ahead to Shapes of Things to Come. "The order of knowledge is always also a political order." (Coy).
