I was thinking as I was reading the discussions about PC's and the like, that
when computers turn into what people consider "antiques" what's probably
happen is that the mass market things (where they made thousands and thousands
of them) will have all been simply thrown out and they'll be the things
that people collect.
The mass market things are the things people remember, and thus, become the
that are collected (and the things like the "box" tend to make very big
differences in $$'s...things
people tended to discard tend to be very important...not quite sure I've
figured out the mental reasoning
for this yet though...)
Never seems to fail when I've visited Antique places...the really rare
disappear or end up in museums, and of course are really "priceless," but
most collectors tend to know much about. (though they of course tend to
be the more
interesting, innovative, and original ideas and things you wonder why they
And, of course, in our case, instead of being in Museums, the cool "rare"
things will all be in Dave's
garage doing real work! 8-) 8-) (couldn't resist....)
