I visited the Computer History Museum shortly after I moved to Boston.. It
was *such* a disappointment. :( OOOhhh! I get to feel how warm a vacuum
tube gets...

It is pretty sad when the best part of the tour was seeing the pictures of
important people in the computer industry at the end.....

They needed to take a cue from places like the Ontario Science Centre where
interactivity is the focus!!
