It's in the Computer!

I proposed the theme this week. Let me tell you where it came from. A couple of years ago after a conference at Google we were visiting some of the kids and my then 4 year old granddaughter, puzzled, asked me: "Grandma, why does your shirt say Google on it?" I was wearing a T-shirt purchased at the Google Store.

"Well, Leesa, it's a souvenir from when I visited Google."

Leesa was most indignant. "Grandma," she declared. "You CAN'T visit Google! GOOGLE-IS-IN-THE-COMPUTER!"

I'm in Silicon Valley visiting Google again, and since my turn for a theme came along at the same time, I proposed "It's in the computer!"

I sure had no idea what I would do, but a visit to the Oakland Museum of California history display (a must see if you are in the area.) took us to the section on history of Silicon Valley and the computer industry. And if this stuff is not "IN THE COMPUTER", I don't know what is.


No cat videos here!

Kathy: You would definetly see all those things in the computer. I certainly don't understand how it all works but I'm glad it does.

Indeed, this stuff is in the (old) computers. Today your cell phone has more computing power and memory that those early ones.

Clever tike. Perhaps your grandchild needs to know where "giggle" comes from.

Nice! I have no idea what those things are--motherboards or something?!? My tech-y sons can tell you, though. That looks like a fascinating museum!
