This year marks Santa Rosa’s Sesquicentennial! Or, for those wondering what number that is – 150 year anniversary. Which brings up the question, what would you put in a time capsule? And when was the first time capsule/how did that become a thing to do? And also, what if you threw a time travelers party and nobody came?
Somehow these all seemed related – maybe the themes of changes in technology and the demographics of tech use – women programmers in the early days of computers, the challenges of keeping digital files accessible, and an 80-something year old app writer.
