    Great article, very well done. You completely skipped over the era of magnetic tapes but I won't hold it against you.

    Double bookkeping seems be invented by an italian mathematician Lucio Pacioli and the method was called venetian method..Croatian did not exist until 1991 see https://www.quora.com/Who-invented-double-entry-bookkeeping

    I do not understand why you said that was invented in Croatia...its shorelines were under Venetian republic for centuries.
