Thematic Photographic 286 - Technological

More power, please
London, ON
December 2011
Welcome to this, our 286th Thematic. In geekdom, 286 has a somewhat strange significance: Intel's 80286 processor was an early example of16-bit architecture. It underpinned IBM's PC/AT (Advanced Technology) computer way back in 1984, and became a technological standard for years thereafter before being superseded by the similarly iconic 386 chip. To this day, simply saying "286" to a nerd is bound to stoke strong memories of a watershed period in the PC revolution.

Or maybe it's just me.

Either way, this week's Thematic theme, technological, celebrates all that is techie. If it looks like, feels like or even suggests some form of technology, we hope you'll share it.

Your turn: Take a photo that evokes or supports this week's theme, then post it to your blog or website. Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Feel free to repeat through the week, and if you want to bring a friend along to double everyone's fun, we're all for that, too. Click here if you're new to Thematic, and please accept my thanks for making Thematic such a highlight.
