The Computer History Museum

Johnniac, Sage, Enigma...the Computer History Museum is where I want to live.

Nice little video.

Don't know that I'd want to live there - but it was sure nice seeing some "old friends"!

Has there been any time in history that something has become so (functionally) obsolete that it ended up in a museum so quickly?

And what digital appliances will be in use when iPhones, iPods, Blackberrys and Palm Pres are on display in the museum?

Good point, Gary! It is amazing that these objects -- some only fifteen years old -- are enshrined in a "museum," because they're of "historic interest" and no longer widely available to the public. Are we moving that quickly?
