How Real-World Numbers Make the Case for SSDs in the Data Center
Don't just do the same stuff everyone else does, go geeky.
5) Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame, Seattle
Visit this facility, which opened just five years ago, and you'll find exhibits about such things as aliens, futuristic cities, and space travel. Even better, while you're there, you can visit the adjoining Experience Music Project and perhaps find some Michael Jackson memorabilia leftover from. Extra bonus: You'll have no excuses if you don't return home with some great coffee.
6) Dinosaur Digs, various locations in Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota
Jump online and you'll find numerous operators of dino digs, each of which provides adventurers with the chance to dig up dinosaur bones. The workaholic nature of techies is well-served here--excavating dinosaur remains is hard work, and conditions are hot and dusty. In other words, it shouldn't be that much different than your data center.
