Computer History Museum is in my backyard
I went to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California today for the first time. While I have heard about it and driven by it many many times, I never really thought of stopping in. The only reason I was there today was to coach one of my clients for his keynote on the stage at AlwaysOn. So, I get there and walk in and see so much more than I expected. I had no idea that the museum houses nearly 2,000 years worth of computer history. That's right! I couldn't believe 2,000 years until I began to read about the history.
For all you locals here in the Bay Area and all the people who visit the Silicon Valley area, be sure and make a stop at the Computer History Museum after you take your pictures at Google, Microsoft, and other famous companies within a stones throw of the museum. I'm told you should allow at least 1/2 day to get through the facility and they even have some pretty nice food. It's also a beautiful venue to host an event.
