Old electronics

Is it possible to feel nostalgia for something that you’ve never experienced firsthand? ¬†Even though I didn’t really become a computer geek until after the internet bubble burst, I definitely have a soft spot for old electronics. It’s not like I can remember owning one of these mythical computers for which Emacs was actually too bloated and huge to be a practical text editor. Maybe it’s because I have so many happy memories from MIT of tinkering with the fantastic and bizarre ancient machines that were discarded by labs. At any rate, I love old electronics: they’re like indie rock but even less accessible.

So you can imagine why I think that this video, which features a bunch of old computer equipment chiming along with Radiohead’s “Nude”, is completely and undeniably awesome in every way.
