I believe Stanley will be the future car for everybody especially the busy executive people. Who knows Ford Motor and Toyota will mass-produce another Stanley, a driver-less vehicle. Imagine, you are traveling daily to your work place and home without driver, or you can take your breakfast along the way.

What an asset to the National Air and Space Museum!


I love visiting the Smithsonian any chance I get. As an avid long time amateur radio operator, I like to see that this link in our communications time line preserved. Actually, I think that Ham Radio communication and its interest is starting to expand again. Heaven forbid, but if we loose our satellite communications for some reason, say a CME, ham radio may become more popular than ever.


Such an insightful post--both into how curatorial decisions about displaying an artifact can yield multiple interpretations of the object's importance/influence, and into the anxieties around collecting contemporary artifacts. Thank you for providing a little window into the museum!
