For anyone attending the LiveCode dev conference in April, if you're not
from the area, I'd strongly suggest allowing a couple of hours one day to
visit the Computer History Museum, located in Mountain View, about a 1/2
hour away from the conference venue.
<http://www.computerhistory.org/>

Housed in a refurbished building that was once part of the Silicon Graphics
campus, the exhibits start with historical devices, through mechanical and
early electrical machines for business, consumer, and military use, up
through the common digital computers and devices of today.  The route
through the exhibits is a bit maze-like, but the whole experience is
beautifully designed, with several short video installations, and includes a
bunch of interesting side-note pop culture computing info, in addition to
the rich history.  All the big names and companies (and those not so big)
are represented, and for those of you still clinging to the bygone days of
programming, you'll be happy to know one of your favorites is displayed,
still in its shrinkwrapped glory:

Note the museum is only open Wed - Sun, so plan your visit accordingly.
