Folklore is about Computers too

I recently discover this site by a friend who gave me the link to it and as soon as I saw what was about I smiled and thought “boy, this is going to be good and fun reading”.

The site I’m talking about is Folklore.org and is a compendium of real anecdotes about the creation of the Macintosh. But that’s only what it is right now because the site is aiming at a much broader audience, in his own words his goal is:

is a web site devoted to collective historical storytelling. It captures and presents sets of related stories that describe interesting events from multiple perspectives, allowing groups of people to recount their shared history in the form of interlinked anecdotes.

Again, today you can only find the anecdotes of the Macintosh project, but that’s pretty good stuff and I assure you can get hours of interesting reading from it.

I also think is time to have a good compendium of Computer’s History told by his forgers so maybe this could encourage others to told their stories.

Have fun!
