Steve Jobs time capsule dug up after 30 years

“For 30 years, a potentially priceless piece of technology history was lost somewhere beneath Aspen, Colorado,” Daniel Terdiman reports for CNET. “At the Aspen International Design Conference in 1983, Steve Jobs gave a talk prognosticating technologies like the iPad, wireless networking, and even the App Store. He used his Lisa mouse to help navigate through the talk and afterward, Jobs added the mouse to a collection of miscellaneous items donated by conference attendees that was then buried as the ‘Aspen Time Tube.'”

“Despite the inclusion of dozens upon dozens of other items, the tube came to be known as the ‘Steve Jobs Time Capsule,’ and organizers looked forward to one day excavating it and showcasing the mouse. Except for one problem — they couldn’t find it,” Terdiman reports. “But now it’s been found, and CNET has exclusive video of the excavation.”

“Now, “Diggers” is gearing up for its season premiere, and its Steve Jobs Time Capsule episode will kick things off on February 25,” Terdiman reports. “Check out the video [in the full article] for the first look at what the show’s hosts, and their experts, found when they opened it up.”

      I did like that the guy said “Boom!” in the video. Probably oblivious to the relevance of his word choice.

  1. They should view the contents and seal the contents again in a second larger capsule with the original inside buried beside the first. Then place new items and response about the first time capsule. Repeat each thirty years.
