Gordon Bell. The name is legendary among geeks. Just read
his Wikipedia page
to see his accomplishments.
About 30 years ago he started collecting computers while working at DEC. That little hobby turned into a sizeable
Computer History Museum
in Silicon Valley. We were honored to be able to get a tour from Gordon and John Toole, the executive director and CEO.
Also in the video are Dave Winer, founder of UserLand Software, my son Patrick, and Dan'l Lewin, co-founder of NeXT Computer. Dan'l and Gordon now work at Microsoft.
Dan'l was on the original Macintosh team and tells us some stories about the early days.
Making an appearance was the Google Code Jam participants who were getting a tour of the museum at the same time we were walking around. You also get to meet Jesse, Dan'l son, who works at an Apple store in Palo Alto.
