in the Albuquerque area, come see Start Up, a new display at The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. It’s about Albuquerque and the history of the personal computer. Lots of interactive fun for kids. They can create and mail movies, they can program a car to pick up a pizza and take them to a party, and there are other fun things to play with. There’s also plenty of stuff for the geek to enjoy with great displays. See a few photos on Flickr.
The best thing was the flash, bang multimedia display called “Rise of the Machines” with its dueling computers, light show, music, whiz-bang effects and amongst all that a good history of the computer. If you’re anywhere near Albuquerque, don’t miss it.
