PC Museum showcases best of hi-tech history

Some of us might have an old computer or two sitting in a dustry storage room somewhere, but almost no one can claim to have more than 20,000 artifacts of computer history in a backyard shed.

Syd Bolton can; the founder and curator of the Brantford, Ont.-based PC Museum has it all. There’s the Commodore 64, the IMSAI 8080, and the VIC 20 – not to mention all the old software and books documenting the technology. It’s a technology treasure trove that piques a sense of nostalgia for those who grew up with pong, and an important lesson for today’s kids that might take technology for granted.
