During the weekend I happen to take a trip down to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. If you haven’t been before I highly recommend checking it out at least once. It’s jam packed with interesting information to excite your inner computer history geekyness.

While touring the museum I came across a delightful quote by Donald Knuth:

Computer programming is an art, because it applies accumulated knowledge to the world, because it requires skill and ingenuity, and especially because it produces objects of beauty.

That Knuth — He always knows what to say :).
