This week was the second of Zoe’s Geo Party! Game 2, revealing a category on the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. When I arrived at the museum, I knew I’d find enough material for a category. What I didn’t know was that I’d be so fascinated that I’d have to rush at the end of my visit to see everything before closing time. If you find yourself nearby, it’s worth taking some time to walk through.
