Computing pioneers get historical nod

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--Those who don't remember history are doomed to repeat it, which is one of the reasons you'd better start paying attention to the Computer History Museum. Otherwise the hard drive on your iPod could suddenly swell to the size of a Cadillac Escalade.

The museum is dedicated to telling the story of the people and products--including those gargantuan 10MB hard drives that were the cutting edge of 1960s computing--that inaugurated the modern computing era.

The people side of the mission came to life Tuesday night, as the museum inducted five more visionaries as fellows. They join the ranks of pioneers such as Intel's Gordon Moore and Adobe Systems founders John Warnock and Charles Geschke.
