IT & Network Infrastructure : Computer History Museum: Safeguarding the Legacies and Lore of IT
At age 31 years, the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif., has established itself as a world-class repository of computing artifacts in Silicon Valley, where many of its exhibits were first created. The nonprofit organization, located for the last 10 years in a modern-looking building that once belonged to Silicon Graphics during its prime, is dedicated to the preservation and celebration of computer history and is home to the largest international collection of computing artifacts in the world, including computer hardware, software, documentation, ephemera, photographs and moving images. Permanent exhibits include "Internet History 1962-1992," "Microprocessors 1971-1996," "The Babbage Engine," "Timeline of Computer History," and "Hall of Fellows," among others. This slide show provides an overview of what one will find at the CHM.
