Michael Rodman | 2 comments I just noticed something that I find interesting and I wanted some feedback from folks who have read the book. In Tales of the City there is one reference (by Mary Anne) to computer dating which I don't understand. If the book was written in 1978 and supposedly takes place in 1976, how can there be computer dating? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!!

I think you used to be able to go to dating agencies and they would put your details on punch cards which computers would match up.
