Description

Once upon a time, human beings lived life without the aid of computers. Then came folks like Bill Gates. STARTUP, a permanent gallery exhibition located inside the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science, chronicles the fits and starts with which the microcomputing revolution began, right here in Albuquerque. Spearheaded by Gates and his compadres, this revolution gave birth to new ways of thinking and living, as well as a cavalcade of compelling new technological toys. Many of them are on display here, including early hardware prototypes, crude video games and even a dupe of nerd king Steve Wozniak's first desk. Entry is included with regular museum admission.
