As a museum and heritage buff who is also a geek at heart, I am pretty excited about this latest campaign by HP to build an online virtual museum of technology. They are looking for photographs and stories of old, outdated equipment that used to occupy a place in our hearts – a typewriter which has outlived its usefulness but not sentimental value, outmoded computers (anybody remember the old Apple II?) or perhaps even handheld games like the old Game and Watch which we loved.
Contest period: 27 May to 10 July 2009
Winners will be announced on: 31 July 2009″
I think if this idea really kicks off, HP could even consider building a permanent museum of technology and equipment here in Singapore! Oh well, let’s continue to dream on…
