In this photo taken Oct. 30, 2012, Ian King, senior vintage systems engineer at the Living Computer Museum in Seattle, loads a large disk drive that holds 5mb of data into a working DEC 11/70 minicomputer from 1975. The machine is part of the collection of running computers at Paul Allen's newly opened Living Computer Museum. For tourists with an interest in Seattle's role as a high-tech hub, there hasn't been much here to see, other than driving over to Microsoft headquarters in suburban Redmond to take pictures of a bunch of boring buildings. But Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has just opened the Living Computer Museum, with displays of old machines _ all in working order _ along with a geeky wish list of items he'd like to add, just in case anybody out there has an old tape drive or super-computer sitting around.
