If you live in the Silicon Valley – San Francisco Bay Area or are visiting I highly suggest a trip to the Computer History Museum. I completely enjoyed walking through it. If you work for a technology company their is a pretty good chance you will be invited to at least one tech event or talk that will either be held at the Computer History Museum or have an after party there.

Favorite finds of this trip:
1) the enigma machine
2) the police robot
3) the PDP-1

One of the volunteers at the museum had worked on a PDP-1 back in the day and had written software for it. He helped the museum restore it and gave me demonstration. Don’t miss that part. It was one of my favorite moments of the visit. The first shooter video game ever called Space War was written for the PDP-1 and you can play it at the Museum on their PDP-1.
