Let the museum come to you

I admit, museums aren’t the most popular day activity. So a post about museums is a challenge, but I like a challenge.

Today I ran into this museum website: http://www.computerhistory.org . It’s both a museum you can visit (located in california) as it is a website about the history of the thing you are reading this from – whether it is a computer, laptop, a handheld tablet/phone or something different entirely. Apart from being a very good example of a poor website design (I got lost in five minutes, try to stay on longer), it has a few online exhibits ranging from the marketing side of the computer to the technical details of a silicon chip. It’s worth checking out to find out where the thing you are holding actually came from, and you’re done browsing Wikipedia.
